The purpose of the present Act is to regulate expropriation procedures in the province of New Brunswick. The Act contains at the outset a definition clause relating to various terms employed therein such as, for example, “court”, “Council of a municipality”, “expropriate”, “expropriating authority”, “injurious affection”, “land”, “owner”, “tenant”, etc. Part I lays down provisions relating to expropriation proceedings and Part II deals with compensation to land owners. According to section 25, where land is expropriated or injuriously affected, or where property other than land is taken, interfered with or injured under authority of a statute that requires compensation to be paid, the statutory authority shall pay each owner a compensation determined in accordance with this Part. The Act consists of 65 sections divided into 3 Parts.
