ParcelMap BC

ParcelMap BC is the first fully sustainable and complete online representation of the cadastre in British Columbia that brings information to life in a visual way. ParcelMap BC is a province-wide parcel fabric, and a critical piece of data infrastructure that powers decision making in local governments, including for taxation, planning, development and more. It is free to access and use, and offers over two million active titled and surveyed provincial Crown land parcels that are continuously updated using authoritative sources.

ParcelMap BC will help smaller local governments who rely on others to maintain their parcels save time and money. Larger local governments can reallocate their mapping resources toward value-added work.

Authorized Subscriber Register

The LTSA has developed the Authorized Subscriber Register to enable organizations that employ a statutory officer or BC commissioner to electronically issue and submit land title documents on the organization's behalf.

The Authorized Subscriber Register eliminates the need for government and certain regulated organizations to retain the services of a lawyer or a notary public (as a subscriber) to electronically sign documents that staff have traditionally ink-signed. The Authorized Subscriber Register also provides access to the benefits of electronic filing.

Tax Authority Notifications

In compliance with the Land Title Act, the LTSA provides local governments in BC and the BC Assessment Authority with electronic copies of tax authority notifications (title, charge and plan updates) for the exclusive purposes of taxation or assessment of real property. The LTSA is able to electronically deliver these notifications at no charge within one business day of the title being registered or updated.

These records may only be used by the local government for such purposes and are not to be further distributed or sold. LTSA records required for other purposes must be acquired by local governments for a fee, as listed in the LTSA fee listing.

If your local government has not yet registered to receive these notifications electronically or requires assistance, contact servicedesk@ltsa.ca to get started.

Land Title Records

In adherence to Section 381 of the Land Title Act, the LTSA provides local governments with survey plans and searches of land title records through myLTSA Enterprise on a fee exempt basis for the exclusive purposes of taxation or assessment of real property. These records may only be used by the local government for such purposes and are not to be further distributed or sold.

LTSA records required for other purposes must be acquired by local governments for a fee, as listed in the LTSA fee listing.

Records purchased from the LTSA by a local government may be resold to the public, but the LTSA advises against such practices for two reasons:

  1. Land title records are subject to amendment, correction or cancellation for many reasons; for these reasons, reliance on current, up-to-date records is critical. Over 700,000 land title applications are filed in BC each year, which shows how often records can change.
  2. Requests for land title records are often made in the context of a larger transaction, such as the development of land, the purchase or sale of land, an estate matter, or other matters that raise important legal issues. In that context, local governments may take on unintended risks by providing land title records search services.

Please refer any parties external to your local government to the Search Land Title Records page to learn how to obtain records. The majority of Land Title Office records can be obtained by business customers through myLTSA Enterprise.
