This Act regulates foreshores and beds of rivers and lakes. It is divided up into 8 section as follows: 1 Short title; 2 Grant or lease of beach or foreshore; 3 Price or rental terms; 4 Grant of water front; 5 Prohibited oyster cultivation; 6 Fish trap or weir; 7 Administration of Act and 8 Disposition of money. The Governor in Council may, upon application to the Minister of Lands and Forests, (a) give a grant from the Crown of any ungranted flat, beach or foreshore upon the coast of the Province to any person; or (b) enter into a lease with any person of any such flat, beach or foreshore. Every grant shall vest the fee simple of the land conveyed absolutely, subject to any control vested in the Parliament of Canada in respect to the navigation of any lands covered with water embraced in such a grant. This Act does not authorize the granting or leasing of any fishing right or privilege in any river or fresh Water Lake of the Province, nor can cultivate oysters without having obtained a lease of the land.
