The Surface Rights Board is a quasi-judicial tribunal that grants right of entry and assists landowners/occupants and operators resolve disputes about compensation when operators require access to private land or occupied crown land to develop subsurface resources such as oil, gas, and coal or to build and operate pipelines and power transmission lines.

How to Apply for a Board Compensation Order

If parties reach an agreement to the rate of compensation for a Right of Entry Order and would like the Board to formalize their agreement as a Board Compensation Order, they should complete the Compensation Order Request form. The form can be found on the left of this page. Please read below for additional instructions.

This form is only for cases where a right of entry order has been issued and the parties have reached an agreement as to compensation. If the parties have an existing compensation order, they should instead apply to have that order varied (see How to Apply to Vary a Board Compensation Order).
