Canada Company

Canada Company

The largest Pre-Confederation land grant I am aware of is the Canada Company grant…a total of almost 2.5 million acres…and if you research it at the archives, it’s one of the so called “special grants”.

The Canada Company was a large private chartered British land development company. Much of this land is now useless under the the Niagara Escarpment Commissions and Conservation Authority. As per these land grants these agencies have zero authority.
