3 - What is Willing Seller - Willing Buyer? How it Works

11 months ago

As directed by Parliament through the Canada National Parks Act, the Government of Canada cannot expropriate private property in order to enlarge or establish a national park or national park reserve. Private lands would only ever be purchased on a willing seller-willing buyer basis, based upon independent property appraisals in conjunction and agreement with private land owners and once the proposed national park reserve is established. The federal government has no jurisdiction over property rights on privately owned land adjacent to or within the boundaries of a national park or national park reserve.
