Benefits for Adopters

ParcelMap BC supports the operations of local governments and other Participating Stakeholders by helping improve the speed of land-related research, planning and business decisions while minimizing data discrepancies.

  • Delivers a sustainable, standardized and continually updated spatial and attribute representation for parcels – a closest-to-source, province-wide property data infrastructure with fewer errors and greater efficiency.
  • Serves as a common system of reference - ParcelMap BC is used to research, prepare and submit survey plans across all local jurisdictions.
  • Provides an authoritative representation of property ownership including tax assessment relationship to BC Assessment’s Jurisdiction and Roll (Folio).
  • Delivers cross-border cadastral data alignment between local governments while supporting alignment of other key data such as zoning, planning, asset management and transportation.
  • Helps inform constituents with land-related research and assist with front counter inquiries through ParcelMap BC Search service.
  • Legal, engineering, survey and IT staff can focus on value-add and service delivery, not maintaining parcel data.
