Price of Dominion Lands

page 49

Price of Dominion Lands.

Unappropriated Dominion lands may at present be purchased at the rate of 31 per acre; but no purchase of more than a section, or 640 acres, shall be made by the same person. Payments of purchases may be made in cash, excepting in the case of Railway land, or in scrip, at the option of the purchaser. The Minister of the Interior may, however, from time to time, reserve tracts of land, as he may deem expedient, for town or village plots, such lots to be sold either by private sale, and for such price as he may see fit, or at public auction. The Governor in Council may set apart lands for other public purposes, such as sites of market places, jails, court houses, places of public worship, burying grounds, schools, benevolent institutions, squares and for other like public purposes.
