This Act has been amended to add a provision that authorizes occupation of public lands for the purpose of erecting, placing, and/or using certain types of structures. No lease, licence, or permit is required to do so, but certain criteria prescribed by regulation may need to be met and a person who occupies public lands under this provision must vacate the lands and remove the structures when required or ordered to do so.

These amendments are in force. More information is available here.
