Lessee Use Rights and Obligations
A lessee who is granted a vacation lot lease may use the lot for vacation purposes only during the lease period. This right is distinct from other public land use rights: it in no way exempts the lessee from complying with current hunting, fishing, and trapping regulations.
The lessee must comply with the terms and conditions of the lease and pay the annual rent as well as municipal and school taxes. The lessee or the buyer must also comply with all municipal by-laws and provincial and federal laws and regulations, notably with regard to wildlife and the environment, as well as all municipal and RCM land development standards.
