Haitian law currently requires that property deeds be handwritten into official registries in order to be legally recognized. This leads to errors, lost copies and registration turnaround times of over 400 business days.

A digital land registry will help the Haitian government phase out handwritten land titles. Digitized records decrease errors and make deeds easier to find and use in transactions.

With the help of Canadian experts, we are making it easier for professionals to search and identify titles, thereby ensuring that Haiti's homeowners and entrepreneurs can claim their property rights and access credit.
