The LTSA’s land title register is where ownership of, and interests in, private land in BC are registered. Leveraging this existing system provides First Nations in the treaty process with:

  • An easy and inexpensive way to register title to land
  • A secure and reliable land title record
  • A land title record that is indefeasible: land ownership cannot be voided, defeated or canceled by any past event, error or omission:
    • BC’s land title system is backed by an assurance fund in case of administrative or system errors
    • By comparison, a deeds-based system cannot offer indefeasibility
    • Land titles and plans are electronically searchable
    • Parcel information is searchable in ParcelMap BC, the current, complete, and trusted visual representation of titled and Crown land parcels in BC

Land title registration is efficient when using the LTSA land title register. Filing an application to transfer title to land or registering an interest can be done:

  • From any location with internet access
  • By any BC lawyer or notary who already files electronically using myLTSA
