During the transition to Web Filing, there will be improvements to the application forms and processes. As a result, you may notice differences between Web Filing Forms, EFS PDF Templates and the filing direction. Any differences simply reflect the differences in system design and will not impact the completion of your filings.

A Web Filing form must be completed and electronically signed online using a myLTSA Enterprise account and in compliance with the directions provided in this guide.

Guidance to Prepare and Submit a Web Filing Form

After you login to your account and create a package, you can start an application. Three key steps to prepare and submit a web filing form are outlined below.

  1. Complete the data entry sections to create a web filing form
  2. Review and e-sign the form in compliance with the statutory requirements of Land Title Act Part 10.1
  3. Click Prepare Submission to send your package to EFS where you can submit the package to the land title office

The content in this guide sets out practice directions and guidance for completing each data entry section in a web filing form. It does not provide step-by-step instruction of the functional components in the data entry sections (i.e. features and functions of buttons and menus on the page). To learn about the functional components of the page, please see Web Filing in myLTSA Help.


General

1.1 If the declaration is completed prior to submitting the package, the declaration is included with the package and must be sequenced after the related application.
1.2 A declaration is filed in support of an application and will append automatically to the related application upon submission through EFS.
1.3 A declaration cannot be used to withdraw an application. A request for withdrawal of an application may be accessed on the View Package page in myLTSA.
