Link to decision summarized

Public Land Disposition – OneStop


This bulletin announced that as of May 30, 2019, new, amendment, and renewal applications for the following public land disposition types must be submitted through OneStop:

  • mineral surface lease (“MSL”);

  • miscellaneous lease (“MLL”);

  • pipeline agreement (“PLA”);

  • pipeline installation lease (“PIL”);

  • licence of occupation (“LOC”);

  • vegetation control easement (“RVC”); and

  • regulator temporary field authorization (“RTF”).

The following public land submission must also be submitted through OneStop:

  • site entry notifications;

  • no-entry cancellations;

  • plan replacements; and

  • submission of digital plans and shapefiles for land use activities.

The AER indicated a new spatial energy development planning tool would be made available to users in order to conduct their landscape-level planning. This tool will accept a shapefile and then produce a report listing existing stakeholders and environmental restrictions within the given boundaries.

The AER also noted that the Government of Alberta would be releasing a new edition of the Enhanced Approval Process Manual. The manual identifies the types of Public Lands Act applications for which the AER may make an expedited decision. The manual will be available on the open government portal.

Further information on the new online submission process for public land disposition applications will be available on the AER website.
