Designation of Properties by Minister (s.34.5-s.34.9)

Overview - Designation of Properties by Minister [and Alterations and Demolitions/Removals] 

The Minister's designation of property under Part IV to be of “cultural heritage value or interest of provincial significance" requires that the property must (i) meet specified criteria specified by regulation (as set out in O. Reg 10/06) and (ii) be designated by a order in accordance with a process that is specified in section 34.6.  

Sections 34.5 to 34.9 also address proposals to alter a property designated by the Minister; proposals to demolish/remove a building or structure on a property designated by the Minister; and the repeal of the designation.   

Most of the provisions found in sections 34.5 to 34.9 address procedural matters related to these various processes.  For ease of navigation, the sections have been organized into the following:
