The LTSA operates the land title and survey systems in BC, and we provide support to First Nations and provincial and federal governments in the later stages of the treaty process.

As part of the treaty process, land may need to be surveyed. Our Surveyor General team is responsible for issuing survey instructions, reviewing and approving survey plans, and preparing Crown grants related to the survey and transfer of lands to a First Nation. We can also provide First Nations with information on survey methods, the mapping of treaty settlement lands, boundary matters and historical records

Once a Final Agreement takes effect, land ownership and interests can be registered to ensure certainty and security of land titles and help the Nation capitalize on economic development opportunities. Our Land Titles team administers the requirements of Schedule 1 of the Land Title Act, which sets out how First Nation treaty lands can be registered in the provincial land title system.
