Web Filing Requirements for the Submission of Additional Information or a Land Title Act Plan Amendment to an Existing Surveyor General Application and Plan Submission

Last modified on February 01, 2021

During the review process by Surveyor General Operations staff, it may be determined that additional information is required in support of your application or that a plan requires amendment.

In order to submit additional information or an amended plan, you will need to locate your previously submitted web filing package. The SG web form will need to be edited within the web filing package, downloaded, and uploaded to the previously submitted electronic filing package to the Surveyor General. See below for in-depth instructions of this process.

All submissions of new information or plan amendments will require that you also resubmit the appropriate Submission to Surveyor General PDF Web Filing form. This is the same form that was submitted with your original package, with relevant updates made as detailed below.

DO NOT edit the original PDF Web Filing Form in Adobe Acrobat. The content needs to be edited within the Web Filing user-interface and a new PDF needs to be generated.

Locate the previously submitted Surveyor General web filing package.

On any of the LTSA's Electronic Services screen, rollover Web Filing and click View All Packages.

Resubmit the Surveyor General Electronic Filing (EFS) package

If the original electronic filing package to be resubmitted includes an LTO Survey Plan Certification Form (SPC), then it must be amended, resigned and included with the resubmission.

DO NOT check ALTERATION on the SPC form. Indicating a plan alteration on the SPC form is only used for Land Title Office submissions.

Once you have located the electronic filing package that requires resubmission, click Add Files.

A file browser window will open. Select the file that you wish to upload and click Open to start the upload. In addition to any new information being submitted, you must ensure that the Surveyor General Application and Plan Submission Web Filing form that was edited in the previous steps of this guide is included in this resubmission.

  • If the document or plan uploads successfully, the document status will say Uploaded
  • If the document or plan fails to upload, the status will say Upload Failed. You can rollover the status to see message explaining the problem.
  • If you have uploaded the wrong file, you can select the checkbox to the right of the document and click Remove Selected Files to remove the file

Add the necessary documents and then click Submit.
