The FrontCounter BC Discovery Tool is designed to help clients view an area of land within the Province of British Columbia. It provides basic information on how the land is currently being used and how it is used relative to your proposed application area.
For example, lands that are privately held or designated as a Provincial Park, National Park or First Nations Reserve are highly constrained in their potential for Crown authorizations and will require a call to FrontCounter BC staff to determine whether the proposed activity is permissible. Avoiding these areas when seeking potential candidate areas for your proposed application may improve your likelihood of success.
Because this tool does not show all land interests, you should contact FrontCounter BC to see if other interests exist that may conflict with your application before submitting it. Create an electronic file of your area of interest, called a Geomark, to submit with your application. Click here for more information on using the Geomark Web Service.
