The LTSA is committed to the arrangement with participating stakeholders that all BC local governments shall have “free and unfettered” access to ParcelMap BC data covering their jurisdiction. The LTSA has defined an operational model that also sustains the ongoing maintenance of ParcelMap BC as a public good, insulating against the risk of becoming out of date in the future.
Access to ParcelMap BC for most local governments is facilitated by license through membership with the ICI Society via the Data Sharing and License Agreement (DSLA) and specifically the ParcelMap BC Addendum for Local Governments to the DSLA. Under that agreement, the local government member is entitled to “a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual licence” to ParcelMap BC covering their jurisdiction (members should consult their DSLA for full terms and conditions).
