This one-year research project focuses on property rights and land use regulation in Alberta. The objectives of this program are threefold: 1) To analyze the constitutional, legal and regulatory frameworks that demarcate private property rights in land in Alberta; 2) To describe the present scope of Alberta’s property rights system and to identify key issues arising from recent land use initiatives; and 3) To develop a nontechnical summary of the above to serve as a resource for stakeholders, policy makers, and land users in general.
