Heritage Inventory

The Inventory is also searchable through the Heritage Inventory Interactive Map.

A property listed on the Inventory is not legally protected.  If a property is legally protected, the protection will be listed on Title, which is available through the BC Land Title and Survey Authority. The City’s online map, where you can download a public site report, will also note heritage protection.  Legal protection of a property from demolition or unsympathetic alterations can be achieved through a variety of heritage planning tools.
