Established in 2005, the Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia (LTSA) is a publicly accountable, statutory corporation responsible for operating BC's land title and survey systems.
The LTSA is established as a regulatory authority, independent from the Province, with the mandate to "manage, operate and maintain the land title and survey systems of British Columbia." Guidance for the LTSA is provided by the Land Title and Survey Authority Actand an Operating Agreementwith the Province.
As the operator and regulator of BC's land title and survey systems, the LTSA is charged with the reliable and secure delivery of these systems which are an essential underpinning to BC's private property market and the civil justice system. These systems also support civic governance, taxation and Crown land management frameworks.
