In British Columbia, a person may divide his or her property into one or more parcels and register them in the Land Title & Survey Authority. Before such a subdivision plan can be registered,
however, the Land Title Act, Strata Property Act, Real
Estate Development Marketing Act and Local Government Act
of British Columbia require an official known as an Approving Officer
to approve the plan.
Collection of Information Authority
The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act was
proclaimed on October 4, 1993. All personal and business information
collected by the Ministry is subject to the provisions of the Act. The
personal information on the subdivision application form is collected
under the authority of the Land Title Act. The information collected
will be used to process the preliminary subdivision application, and
it may be necessary for the Ministry to provide this information to
other agencies. The District Development Technician will answer any
questions the applicant may have about the collection, use, and disclosure
of this information.
