Computerized Searching Of Land Registry Documents Now Available In Prince County

Provincial Treasury

Provincial Treasurer Patricia J. Mella announced today that the Computer Hosted Registry Indexing System (CHRIS) is now available in the Prince County Registry Office, Summerside. CHRIS is a client-server application that automates the land registry system.

CHRIS offers users the convenience of searching through the references of post-1995 land registry documents in many ways including: name, document number and year. When a document reference is located, the user can take the information and quickly identify the corresponding conveyances, liens and deeds in the registry books.

"Technology is revolutionizing the delivery of services across the Island," said Minister Mella. "The implementation of CHRIS is a key stepping stone to other e-government initiatives and has already proven valuable to users in both Queens and Kings counties." The Provincial Treasurer continued to say, "A new land-related information application on the Internet is the next phase in moving toward a fully electronic system. Plans are now underway to provide this alternative for those who prefer to do business online."

The Charlottetown and Summerside registry offices are open to the public Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm at the following locations: Charlottetown, 11 Kent Street, Jones Building, 1st Floor, telephone (902)368-4591. Summerside, 120 Harbour Drive, 2nd Floor, telephone (902)888-8080.
