Land and Water Applications

Clients seeking information or access to new or existing land and water authorizations will continue to be served by former LWBC offices until regional Front Counter BC Centres are fully operational. Regionally, Land and Water applications will eventually be handled by Front Counter BC – Natural Resource Opportunity Centres.

The current exception to the rule is in Kamloops where Front Counter BC is already fully operational.

In the interim, former LWBC offices will serve as regional delivery offices for the Ministries of Agriculture and Lands, Environment, and Tourism, Sports and the Arts staffed by Ministry employees. These offices are located in: Nanaimo, Surrey, Cranbrook, Penticton, Williams Lake, Prince George, Smithers and Fort St. John. For clients, contact with the office will change very little. In most cases, the same people will be answering the phones and greeting clients in person.
