ParcelMap BC is the single, complete, trusted and sustainable electronic map of active titled parcels and surveyed provincial Crown land parcels in British Columbia. This particular dataset is comprised of the parcel fabric and all of the applicable attributes provided by the BC Land Title and Survey Authority, for over two million parcels.

Notes:

  1. Parcel title information is sourced from the BC Land Title Register. Title questions should be directed to a local Land Title Office.

  2. This data is Access Only and restricted to use by BC Government employees. A public dataset is also available and released under the Open Government License - British Columbia: WHSE_CADASTRE.PMBC_PARCEL_FABRIC_POLY_SVW

  3. The ParcelMap BC Parcel Fabric is expected to eventually replace the Integrated Cadastral Fabric.

Additional Information

Purpose

ParcelMap BC provides a single-source, up to date representation of titled and surveyed Crown land parcels in British Columbia. This provides for improved speed and efficiency of land-related research province-wide, facilitating planning and business decisions through the current spatial representation of a given parcel and its relationship to adjacent parcels. ParcelMap BC helps support faster and more accurate real property transactions while minimizing possible data discrepancies and confusion by reducing the need to consult separate spatial systems in British Columbia.

Data Quality

ParcelMap BC is the single, complete, trusted and sustainable electronic map of active titled parcels and surveyed provincial Crown land parcels in British Columbia. The data is continually updated by the ParcelMap BC Operations Team at the Land Title and Survey Authority of BC in response to events which change the parcel fabric, including new survey plans accepted from land surveyors. Spatial adjustments are periodically applied to improve the parcel fabric alignment to provincial survey systems and georeferencing standards by using survey information provided on the survey plans and published control monumentation.

Lineage Statement

ParcelMap BC data is continually updated by the ParcelMap BC Operations team at the Land Title and Survey Authority of BC. New plans and other parcel fabric updates enter the maintenance queue upon registration or confirmation with an update publication service target of approximately two business days. The B.C. Government currently refreshes this view of the ParcelMap BC data on a weekly cycle.

Object Description

Object Name: WHSE_CADASTRE.PMBC_PARCEL_FABRIC_POLY_FA_SVW

Short Name: PMBC_FA
Comments: The ParcelMap BC (PMBC) parcel fabric contains all active titled parcels and surveyed provincial Crown land parcels in BC. This dataset is polygonal and contains all of the parcel attributes.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
PARCEL_FABRIC_POLY_ID POLY_ID NUMBER 10 PARCEL_FABRIC_POLY_ID is a system generated unique identification number.
GLOBAL_UID GLOBAL_UID VARCHAR2 254 GLOBAL_UID is a unique global identifier (GUID) for the parcel.
PARCEL_NAME PARCEL_NM VARCHAR2 50 PARCEL_NAME is the same as the PID, if there is one. If there is a PIN but no PID, then PARCEL_NAME is the PIN. If there is no PID nor PIN, then PARCEL_NAME is the parcel class value, e.g., COMMON OWNERSHIP, BUILDING STRATA, AIR SPACE, ROAD, PARK.
PLAN_ID PLAN_ID NUMBER 10 PLAN_ID is the unique identifier of the land survey plan that corresponds to this parcel.
PLAN_NUMBER PLAN_NUM VARCHAR2 128 PLAN_NUMBER is the Land Act, Land Title Act, or Strata Property Act Plan Number for the land survey plan that corresponds to this parcel, e.g., VIP1632, NO_PLAN.
PIN PIN NUMBER 10 PIN is the Crown Land Registry Parcel Identifier, if applicable.
PID PID VARCHAR2 9 PID is the Land Title Register parcel identifier, an up-to nine-digit text number with leading zeros that uniquely identifies a parcel in the land title register of in British Columbia. The registrar assigns PID numbers to parcels for which a title is being entered as a registered title. The Land Title Act refers to the PID as the permanent parcel identifier.
PID_NUMBER PID_NUMBER NUMBER 10 PID_NUMBER is the Land Title Register parcel identifier, an up-to nine-digit number that uniquely identifies a parcel in the land title register of in British Columbia. The registrar assigns PID numbers to parcels for which a title is being entered as a registered title. The Land Title Act refers to the PID as the permanent parcel identifier.
SOURCE_PARCEL_ID SRC_PRC_ID VARCHAR2 50 SOURCE_PARCEL_ID is the unique parcel identifier supplied by the source data provider. The value is intended to assist local governments by providing traceability back to the source data provider's parcel ID. It will not be populated during on-going operations, e.g., DATA_NEW, CPG000050, 999, 01762.146.
PARCEL_STATUS STATUS VARCHAR2 20 PARCEL_STATUS is the status of the parcel, according to the Land Title Register or Crown Land Registry, as appropriate, i.e., ACTIVE, CANCELLED, INACTIVE, PENDING.
PARCEL_CLASS CLASS VARCHAR2 50 PARCEL_CLASS is the Parcel classification for maintenance, mapping, publishing and analysis, i.e., PRIMARY, SUBDIVISION, PART OF PRIMARY, BUILDING STRATA, BARE LAND STRATA, AIR SPACE, ROAD, HIGHWAY, PARK, INTEREST, COMMON OWNERSHIP, ABSOLUTE FEE BOOK, CROWN SUBDIVISION, RETURN TO CROWN.
OWNER_TYPE OWNER_TYPE VARCHAR2 50 OWNER_TYPE is the general ownership category, e.g., PRIVATE, CROWN PROVINCIAL, MUNICIPAL. For more information, see https://help.ltsa.ca/parcelmap-bc/owner-types-parcelmap-bc
PARCEL_START_DATE START_DATE DATE 7 PARCEL_START_DATE is the date of the legal event that created the parcel, i.e., the date the plan was filed.
SURVEY_DESIGNATION_1 SRV_DESIG1 VARCHAR2 30 SURVEY_DESIGNATION_1 is, typically, the smallest division of lands in a survey. If available, this is generally the Parcel from a Subdivided short legal description or the Quadrant or Block from an Unsubdivided short legal description, e.g., PARCEL A, SW4.
SURVEY_DESIGNATION_2 SRV_DESIG2 VARCHAR2 30 SURVEY_DESIGNATION_2 is, typically, the second smallest division of lands in a survey. If available, this is generally the Lot from a Subdivided short legal description or the District Lot, Lot or Section from an Unsubdivided short legal description, e.g., LOT 2.
SURVEY_DESIGNATION_3 SRV_DESIG3 VARCHAR2 30 SURVEY_DESIGNATION_3 is, typically, the third smallest division of lands in a survey. If available, this is generally the Block from a Subdivided short legal description or the Range from an Unsubdivided short legal description, e.g., BLOCK H.
