Railway documents

Depositing railway documents

Sections 104 and 105 of the Canada Transportation Act (CTA) allow certain documents associated with railways to be deposited with the office of the Registrar General of Canada. Section 104 allows for the deposit of mortgages and hypothecs. Section 105 of the CTA allows for the deposit of certain contracts respecting rolling stock.

While the intent of sections 104 and 105 of the CTA is to provide public notice of the interests contained in the documents deposited, the Registrar does not warrant the accuracy or completeness of the deposit system or the documents. In accessing the deposit system, you agree that the use of the system is at your own risk. Whether considering to deposit a document or to search for a railway document, you may wish to consult with legal counsel or other professional advisers to understand the issues as they apply to your particular situation.
