Transfer of BCBC Property to Provincial Crown

The Public Agency Accommodation Act, S.B.C. 2006, c. 7, repeals the British Columbia Buildings Corporation Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 33, and effects a statutory transfer of all property, rights, and assets of the corporation to the government of British Columbia. The transfer took effect on April 1, 2006.

A transfer by Her Majesty the Queen in Right of British Columbia to a third party when title to land is registered in the name of British Columbia Buildings Corporation is satisfactory insofar as the name of the transferor is concerned as it merely documents the statutory transfer authorized under the Public Agency Accommodation Act.

For greater clarity, transfers in accordance with the Public Agency Accommodation Act should state “Pursuant to the Public Agency Accommodation Act” in either item 1 or item 4 of the Form A Freehold Transfer. Failure to specify “Pursuant to the Public Agency Accommodation Act” constitutes grounds for issuing a Notice Declining to Register.
