Government of New Brunswick


An Easement is a right enjoyed by one landowner over the land of another for a special purpose other than general use and occupation for an unlimited period of time. It does not give exclusive use, meaning that multiple easements could be given for the same land as long as each use does not interfere with another use. Easements are issued mostly for rights-of way, utilities (eg. powerlines) and municipal services (e.g. discharge or intake pipe).


- Applicants must be at least 19 years of age
- Businesses must be registered with Corporate Affairs in New Brunswick and provide a copy of their certificate of incorporation.
- Applicant(s) must be the registered owner of the land benefiting from a right-of-way easement.
