Director's Message

The Integrated Registry Branch, in working with other ministries and agencies across government, plays a key role in the management of land and resource tenure activities on the Crown land base of BC. The Branch is also a "foundation block" to the Integrated Land Management Bureau's mission to create natural resource opportunities for British Columbian's through the integrated delivery of natural resource authorizations, Crown Land administration, planning and natural resource information services.

The Branch acts primarily as a shared service provider to its core clients: Ministry of Forests and Range, Ministry of Agriculture and Lands, Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources and the Ministry of Environment to update and maintain the Crown Land and Resource Cadastre on behalf of government. The Branch is also responsible for building and maintaining a survey parcel (Crown and private) fabric for the province, providing specialized land and resource status information and the provision of Crown land digital document images and Crown cadastre data. Other key responsibilities for the Branch include the management of the Crown Land Registry and the development, deployment and operation of the Integrated Land and Resource Registry.

Although technology plays an integral role into how the Branch is able to meet its responsibilities, the heart of the "system" is the staff who are part of the is organization. These valuable staff members act as leaders in their field and are committed to providing quality service to their core clients and to the people of BC.

The information contained on this website provides a "window" into the activities of the Branch and its key linkages to the rest of the Integrated Land Management Bureau. I hope this information is informative and useful.
