REGISTRATION PROGRAM - VOTE 802

This program provides for the registration of documents and plans relating to the ownership and encumbrance of real property, registration of conditional sales contracts, chattel mortgages and other documents related to personal property pledged as security. In addition, it registers and maintains accurate information on births, adoptions, marriages, deaths and legal name changes to determine individual rights and obligations in health, social programs, child support, citizenship and law enforcement. It also manages the legal identification or establishment of almost all of the business and not-for-profit entities operating in Ontario and the provision of public access to registered information about these entities.

NOTE: Commencing in 2003-04, Estimates are presented on the accrual basis of accounting. Information for 2002-03 and earlier years is presented on the modified cash basis, and therefore comparison between 2003-04 and earlier year figures may not be meaningful. Differences between cash and accrual relate to adjustments such as timing of transfer payments and provisions for bad debts, that would increase or decrease the 2002-03 amounts had they been presented on the accrual basis.

Adjustments for this Ministry, if any, are indicated by superscripted references above and are explained on the page following the Ministry Summary - Reconciliation of 2002-03 Estimates from Cash to Accrual.
