Subdivision Application Process/Timeline

What happens after I submit my application?
We review it to make sure that your proposal meets Yukon laws and regulations. Then it is distributed to several agencies for technical review. It goes to the Subdivision Approving Officer who approves it, approves it with conditions or denies it. If you don't agree with the decision of a Subdivision Approving Officer, in most cases, the decision may be appealed.

After you have received subdivision approval, you must hire a Canada Lands Surveyor to have the land surveyed. The Plan of Survey must be registered with the Land Titles Office within 12 months of the Plan approval date.


How long will my application take?
The subdivision approving officer is required to make a decision within 90 days from when the application is considered complete, meaning all the required information has been received by Land Planning. Due to the high volume of subdivision applications, you should expect the process to take the full 90 days. If your application is approved, you must hire a Canada Lands Surveyor to have the land surveyed. The Plan of Survery must be registered with the Land Titles Office within 12 months of the Plan approval date.
