Response from Minister Doug Donaldson: Land Title Document Execution

  • April 22, 2020

"Thank you for your letter of March 19, 2020, regarding the operation of British Columbia’s land title system during the COVID-19 pandemic and your concerns regarding the health and safety of legal professionals during this time.

The Province of British Columbia values the important work and services provided by legal professionals which support BC’s land title system. The province has worked closely with the Land Title and Survey Authority (LTSA) to understand and evaluate the options available for remote execution of land title documents. We believe a solution has been identified that effectively addresses the concerns of all parties while still complying with the legislative provisions currently in place and maintaining the integrity of BC’s land title system."
