Real property registries are provincial and territorial systems with names like Land Registry, Land Registration System, Land Title System, and Registry of Deeds. These systems record the current and past owners of the land, including transfers of ownership. These systems also record interests in land such as mortgages and judgments.
There are personal property security interests which must be registered in both the land registry and the Personal Property Registry, for example: crops and fixtures (such as structures temporarily attached to land).
Unlike the land registry, PPRS does not provide definitive information about the ownership of property. A “security interest” is not the same as ownership.
