A subdivision application is a proposal to change a property as it is described on a Certificate of Title. Subdivision application can result in dividing a parcel of land into smaller pieces, or, re-arranging the location of the property boundaries.

Subdivision applications are reviewed by the Municipal Council, but ultimately decided on by the Red River Planning District Board.

An amendment to the Subdivision Regulation was approved in February 2017. As such, a Subdivision Application Map (SAM) prepared by a Manitoba land surveyor is required to accompany all subdivision applications effective September 1, 2017.

The SAM will provide assurance to the applicant, the municipality and review agencies that it accurately reflects property limits and does not create physical encroahments or omit important information. As a result, authorities can efficiently process subdivision applications knowing all the necessary and correct information is provided.
