COVID-19 Notice

In order to protect the health and well-being of our employees and customers, the Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia (LTSA) is restricting access in all Land Title Offices to only its employees, direct access pass holders and Registry Agents until further notice.

Land Title Office front counters are closed; all other office operations continue as usual. Follow us on Twitter for updates.

LTSA is established through the Land Title and Survey Authority Act. Our governance, fee regime and operations are established and administered in accordance with numerous provincial statutes and regulations, including:
