may use Crown Land as if it is your own property.
It may be used for a wide range of activities:
for hunting, fishing, berry picking, herb picking, as well
as any other kind of recreation activities such as horse riding,
skiing, boating, skidoing, biking, hiking, camping, and gold
Even if you own a large property yourself,
but are surrounded by private properties, the above mentioned
activities may eventually take you to your neighbour’s
property lines, possibly causing privacy limitations and concerns
with your neighbours.
The Government of Canada doesn’t
sell Crown Land any more. Properties bounded by Crown Land
are rare. Usually they have a high idealistic value, too,
which influences their market value.
For these reasons, properties next to
or near Crown Land have an added advantage and value. With
Crown Land as your neighbour you can own much less land yourself
and still enjoy the same privileges. It means less investment,
lower taxes, fewer responsibilities.
