  Final Plan Examination Fee

The plan examination fee is paid to the Minister of Finance for the final checking, approval, and signing of the subdivision plans.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure does not collect fees required by other agencies.  However, the Provincial Approving Officer will reject the final plan for non-payment of fees. If re-approval is required, the exam fee is charged.

The fee for final subdivision plans for fee simple subdivisions in unorganized territories is set by Section 3 of B.C. Regulation 8/89.  For bare land strata and phased strata proposals, the fees are set by B.C. Regulations 75/78 and 43/2000 respectively under the Strata Property Act.  Section 47(1) of the Financial Administration Act sets fees charged for preliminary subdivision application.
