Q. How do I search the Glenbow's CPR Land Sales Catalogue?





The CPR Land Sales Catalogue contains records of sales of agricultural land by the Canadian Pacific Railway to settlers in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta from 1881 to 1927. The information includes the name of the purchaser, legal description of the land, number of acres purchased, and cost per acre. These records are often used when applying for Century Farm status.

Enter your search term(s) in the Purchase of Land box, or use the Browse button to the right of the box to select a purchasers’ name. Or: Enter the legal description of the land (i.e. NW-23-4-18-W4) in the boxes below, using the dropdown lists.
