The Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia (LTSA) and the BC Government are pleased to announce that ParcelMap BC, the sustainable mapping infrastructure that brings information to life in a visual way, now offers complete province-wide coverage. The LTSA formed the ParcelMap BC project team, involving the Province and other stakeholders—including Integrated Cadastral Information Society (ICI Society), the Association of BC Land Surveyors (ABCLS), and BC Assessment (BCA)—to integrate over two million parcels across BC into the ParcelMap BC fabric.

ParcelMap BC improves the speed and efficiency of land-related research, planning and business decisions through the current spatial representation of a given parcel of land and its relationship to adjacent parcels. ParcelMap BC offers an easy-to-use and reliable source of extensive spatial infrastructure data that 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.

ParcelMap BC was developed in collaboration with MacDonald Dettweiler and Associates (MDA), Martin Newby Consulting (MNC) and Esri, a leading geographic information system (GIS) software provider. The LTSA was recently recognized by Esri Canada with its Award of Excellence in GIS Innovation, and received a Special Achievement in GIS award from Esri International.

ParcelMap BC is currently available through multiple service channels, including as a dataset in the Province of BC’s Data Catalogue; from the LTSA website; and through the myLTSA portal. Additionally, the LTSA is actively working with ICI Society to facilitate ParcelMap BC adoption by its local government members.

Doug Donaldson, Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development:

“Congratulations to the LTSA on the successful completion of the initial build of the ParcelMap BC fabric. Greater access to quality spatial data through ParcelMap BC presents interesting possibilities for open, creative and collaborative efforts to develop meaningful land information solutions for BC.”

Connie Fair, President and CEO of the Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia:

“We gratefully acknowledge the guidance and support offered by the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, and the contributions of our various partners—including local governments who provided much of the foundational parcel information—to complete this ambitious project. The initial build of ParcelMap BC now offers a sustainable mapping infrastructure that unifies and standardizes parcel information, enabling everyone to access and benefit from land information in BC.”
