Land Value Appraisal Commission


The Land Value Appraisal Commission is an independent tribunal, which determines the due compensation payable for government land purchases and expropriations.  Its operation is governed by The Land Acquisition Act, with respect to government purchases, and by The Expropriation Act, with respect to expropriations.

The Commission’s expropriation compensation decisions are binding on both the expropriating authority and landowner(s).  Decisions on matters of fact and law are appealable to the Court of Appeal.  The Commission’s Land Acquisition Act decisions are binding on the acquiring authority, but not on the landowner(s).


The Commission holds Public Hearings in connection with land being acquired by the Province of Manitoba and the City of Winnipeg. Hearings are held in Winnipeg and within the Province. Any party may be represented by counsel and may call witnesses, submit evidence and present argument.
