Advisory: FAO Cautions Landowners about the Surface Rights Board (SRB) use of a “Condition of Leased Area Form”
The Farmers’ Advocate Office (FAO) has been contacted by numerous landowners regarding a form sent to landowners or occupants who have applied for recovery of unpaid rentals to the Surface Rights Board (SRB). If you have applied to the SRB for a Section 36 Recovery of Rentals, the SRB may send you a “Condition of Leased Area Form” for you to complete about the condition of the leased area.

Reminder from TransCanada Energy
Several times a year TransCanada Energy finds that landowners have brushed and ditched over high pressure pipelines without authorization posing great danger to themselves and the public. TransCanada is reaching out with the hope that sharing information may prevent an accidental line strike.
