GeoBC supports rights granting agencies in making durable land based decisions and the section is often asked to provide assistance on issues relating to the determination of land and resource ownership or established rights and obligations.
Internal and external self-service access is provided through the Integrated Land and Resource Registry (ILRR), a consolidation of rights and interests electronically captured in one place and output in a consistent and credible format. Where access to a greater depth of knowledge or risk mitigation for a statutory issue is required, the section is equipped to conduct that more detailed and specific research.
By providing the tools and training for agencies to conduct their own land research as well as the sharing of expertise when needed, the Resource Registry & Research Section is able to support the responsible management of BC’s natural resources and better enable both citizens and government programs to find the information they need in a timely manner and in a form that is easily understandable.
The ILRR provides a single source of reliable information on Crown Land legal interests, the place to go for a first-cut view of BC Crown Land status.
