Provincial archaeology programs are designed to encourage and facilitate the protection, conservation and public appreciation of British Columbia's archaeological resources as mandated by the Heritage Conservation Act. Services are delivered through two program areas in the Archaeology Branch:

  • The Permitting and Assessment Section administers a permit system under the Act, represents archaeological resource interests on review committees established under the Environmental Assessment Act, and provides archaeological resource input to the development of provincial Land and Resource Management Plans.

  • The Archaeological Site Inventory Section administers the Provincial Heritage Register under the Heritage Conservation Act, and records, maintains, and distributes heritage resource information. This information supports land use planning and impact assessments at the provincial, regional, and local levels, and is typically supplied to private industry, other government agencies, first nations, archaeologists, and the general public.
