The Ontario-Teranet Partnership

Ontario’s Electronic Land Registration System (ELRS) was developed in full collaboration with the Government of Ontario, as well as key stakeholders in the legal community.

The Ontario ELRS is widely recognized as the most sophisticated, secure and efficient electronic land registration system in the world. Our platforms facilitate online property searches and registrations, writ searches, and other regulated services.

Platforms

Teranet works closely with the government to design and maintain secure platforms to provide multiple property search and registry services in the province of Ontario. We believe the Teranet model can deliver similar benefits for other jurisdictions seeking new avenues for providing convenient access to public assets, while realizing more value for money.
