How does the Board determine the amount of compensation payable?

•  Market value (see also sections 41 and 55 of the Expropriation Act)

•  Damages attributable to disturbance (see also section 56 of the Expropriation Act)

•  Special economic advantage to the owner, and

•  Damages for injurious affection (see also section 56 of the Expropriation Act)

Do I get reimbursed for any costs I incur?

  • The Expropriating Authority must pay the owner’s reasonable legal, appraisal and other costs. The Board may also reduce or deny costs where it determines “special circumstances” exist. The owner may obtain legal advice as to whether to accept the proposed payment in full settlement of compensation, and the Expropriating Authority shall pay the owner’s reasonable legal costs for the advice (see sections 35 and 39 of the Expropriation Act).

Do I need to submit my evidence to the Board or to the other party prior to the Hearing?

Can I appeal the Board's order?

  • A party may appeal the Board’s decision to the Alberta Court of Appeal. On appeal, the Court of Appeal may refer the matter back to the Board or may make any decision or order that the Board has the power to make (see section 37 of the Expropriation Act).
