The present Regulation provides for the enactment of the Public Land Act. The Regulation focuses on three key themes: land management, compliance and enforcement, appeals and dispute resolution. The Regulation applies to provincial land managed by Sustainable Resource Development under the Public Lands Act. The new rules around recreation apply to vacant public land not held under a disposition that offers exclusive use. The Regulation does not apply to parks/wilderness areas (managed by Tourism, Parks and Recreation) or lands managed by Transportation or Infrastructure. Federal Lands are also not affected by the Regulation. The text consists of 246 sections divided into 11 Parts as follows: General (1); General access to public land and trespass (2); Dispositions (3); Mortgages, Assignments, transfers and subleases (4); Reinstatement of dispositions (5); Monitoring and compliance (6); Access to information (7); Enforcement (8); Public land uses (9); Appeals and dispute resolution (10); Transitional provisions, consequential amendments, repeals, expiry and coming into Force (11).
