Geographic Information System

The Geographic Information System (GIS) for the Regional District forms the electronic foundation for the provision of land parcel based information and services. The data model in place allows staff at the Regional District to provide mapping and analysis functions which are specific to many Regional District services such as Land Use Planning, Building Inspection Services, Utility Services, Bylaw Enforcement, Administration, Waste Management, Property Information, Emergency Planning and Emergency Services (9-1-1).

For more information on Mapping Services and GIS, please contact the RDCK Planning Department (250-352-8165).

If you want a map of your property, a Cadastral map showing subdivided lots (drawn to scale but without dimensions) can be obtained from the Planning Department, for a fee (see below).
