ParcelMap BC is a sustainable mapping infrastructure that brings information to life in a visual way. It integrates over two million active titled and surveyed provincial Crown land parcels across BC into the ParcelMap BC fabric.

ParcelMap BC was recently recognized by Esri, the global leader in spatial analytics, with a Special Achievement in GIS Award.



Access ParcelMap BC

ParcelMap BC improves the speed and efficiency of land-related research, planning and business decisions through the current spatial representation of a given parcel and its relationship to adjacent parcels. When accessed through the myLTSA portal, ParcelMap BC enables lawyers, notaries, land surveyors, developers, realtors, utility companies, local governments, and other stakeholders to quickly view a given parcel of land, its relationship to adjacent parcels, and access extensive information about the parcel. 

Property owners and other members of the general public can also access ParcelMap BC as a guest user. This type of access enables users to search the basic land information they need, without having to register for a myLTSA account. Visit the ParcelMap BC Help site for assistance getting started.

ParcelMap BC Benefits

While the provincial government and many local governments have individually compiled portions of a provincial parcel fabric, the several disparate parcel fabrics that exist today are maintained on a "best efforts" basis. ParcelMap BC creates a single, complete, trusted and sustainable electronic map of active titled parcels and surveyed provincial Crown land parcels in BC. 

ParcelMap BC provides the following benefits:

  • Supports faster and more accurate real property transactions
  • Improves the speed and efficiency of land-related research, planning and business decisions through the current spatial representation of a given parcel and its relationship to adjacent parcels
  • Minimizes possible data discrepancies and confusion by reducing the need to consult separate spatial systems in BC

Parcel Fabric Updates

Existing spatial data aggregated by the Integrated Cadastral Information Society (ICI Society) from the provincial government and participating local governments has been consolidated, missing parcels compiled, and an ongoing operation and maintenance framework has been developed.

The ParcelMap BC fabric is continually updated by the ParcelMap BC Operations Team. New plans enter the operation maintenance queue once they are registered or confirmed. Service targets for currency of the fabric are being refined, but the ultimate goal is to have updates processed within two business days for areas of the fabric in operations. 

Assistance to Local Governments

BC Assessment has provided $1.25 million to fund the BC Assessment ParcelMap BC Grant Program to partially offset costs associated with local government adoption of ParcelMap BC. The ICI Society is administering the grant program to assist local governments committed to adopting ParcelMap BC as the definitive parcel fabric, or for their efforts required to adapt local GIS information to ParcelMap BC.

Survey Plan Datasets

Changes to the parcel fabric will be incorporated with the assistance of the submission of an electronic Survey Plan Dataset provided by BC land surveyors for virtually every survey plan filed with the LTSA.
