The Surface Rights Board is a quasi-judicial tribunal that grants right of entry and assists landowners/occupants and operators resolve disputes about compensation when operators require access to private land or occupied crown land to develop subsurface resources such as oil, gas, and coal or to build and operate pipelines and power transmission lines.


The Surface Rights Board views each case independently and is not bound by its prior decisions. However, past decisions may be useful for giving an indication of the kind of considerations the Board may take into account. Search for Surface Rights Board Decisions allows you to search past Board decisions by name, date, or keyword. Judicial Review / Appeals of Board Decisions contains links to court decisions involving decisions of the Board.
