Purpose

The purpose of this dataset is to give an overall Provincial view of all of the SOLEs and BCRs that are currently active in the Province. Local Governments and First Nations are responsible for the issuance of these documents and the areas affected but in order to get a better perspective of where all of these are occurring in the Province this dataset aggregates all of those areas into a Provincial overview.

Data Quality

This dataset is updated as required whenever a Provicial overview is required of Geographical Information that will allow the Province to get a better understanding of the support required for Local Governments during an emergency event.

Lineage Statement

Source of these boundaries is from Local Governments and First Nations either through their Online mapping applications or through the conversion of textual documents into a geographical location as found on their websites or on the Emergency Info BC website.
