During the Covid-19 pandemic state of emergency, the Province of B.C. declared LTSA as an essential service. LTSA continued to operate and customers continued filing applications, registering land title interests and searching for land information through our online systems.

The provincial state of emergency ended June 30, 2021, with certain orders extended to help with the gradual transition back to normal.

LTSA front counter services are open by appointment only. Visit our Contact Us page for more information on how to book an in-person appointment, email or speak to a customer service representative over the phone.

LTSA continues to offer Identity Verification, a secure and convenient way to mitigate fraud risk in situations when remote witnessing and social distancing practices are necessary. Learn more or Login to myLTSA now.

Temporary Practice Changes During COVID-19

LTSA’s temporary practice changes remain in effect for certain applications signed and submitted from March 2020 until further notice.

As outlined in the Affidavit of Execution Web Filing Practice Guide, the section 49 affidavit process for signing without officer certification remains the same. For more details on section 49, including preferred forms of affidavit, please see paragraphs 5.88 to 5.101 in the Land Title Practice Manual.

Much of the temporary practice changes involved remote witnessing procedures (see Practice Bulletin 01-20: Process for Remote Witnessing of Affidavits for Use in Land Title Applications) and the acceptance of true copies instead of originals when submitting documents (see Changes to E-filing Directions for Supporting Documents).
