Newsletters

To accompany the land registration system newsletters and communiques were published to provide policy and procedure information to stakeholders and clients. Copies of past issues of Deeds and Dialogue, Common Ground and the Registrar General’s Communique, can be found online in the Client Resource Manual. Please note the newsletters may contain contact information that is no longer current.

Deeds and Dialogue (2000 - 2005)

Deeds and Dialoguewas produced quarterly by the Registry 2000 project team while the land registration system was being implemented. Distributed in paper and electronic form to more than 5,200 stakeholders, it provided up-to-date, relevant information on the technological, legislative and procedural changes resulting from the modernization of the Nova Scotia land registration system.

Common Ground (2006 – 2010)

To accompany the land registration system, Common Ground replaced Deeds and Dialogue and provided the same communications support stakeholders had become accustomed to.

Registrar General’s Communique (2006 – 2010)

To provide support in policy and procedures, the Registrar General's Communiqué was published concurrently with the Common Ground newsletter, when required.
