Compensation for Surface Rights in Alberta

  • J. Darryl Carter
  • Colin Carter
  • Roy Carter


The authors advocates a new method of assessing compensation under the Alberta Surface Rights Act. This method, termed the "global approach" has found acceptance in the courts, as it has been difficult to give fair awards only using the heads of damages listed in the Surface Rights Act. The authors explain these difficulties and the advantages of the "global approach".
