This Act makes provision with respect to agreements on the fencing of land and actual fencing. This Act shall apply to such areas as the Minister may, by statutory notice, declare. The Minister shall not apply this Act to any area unless the majority of owners of occupied farms in the area present and voting have expressed themselves in favour of such application at a meeting convened in accordance with this Act. The owners of adjoining lands not divided by a sufficient fence shall be liable to join in or contribute to the construction of a dividing fence between such lands in equal proportions. Owners of land may invite, by notice, owners of adjoining land to participate in or contribute to the fencing of land.
