BC Government's SMS Services Terms of Use

The BC Government provides an SMS text messaging service using toll-free numbers of 10DLC to send and receive SMS text messages for SMS notifications and conversational messages.

How to Opt-in

To opt-in to receive information via SMS, users may do so by request during a phone call to the contact center verbally, during an in-person conversation, via webform or hard copy form or by sending a message to a toll number or toll free number.

How to Opt-out

To opt-out of our SMS service, text STOP to the toll or toll free number from which you have received an SMS message. You will be unsubscribed immediately from receiving messages from that specific number going forward unless you opt-in to that number again. You will receive an SMS confirming that you have been unsubscribed and you will not receive any additional messages unless you opt-in to the service with a subsequent request. To opt-in to that number again, you will need to send UNSTOP.

How to get help or support

To get help text or call the toll or toll free number you received messages from.


Our service never charges consumers to send or receive text messages. However, message and data rates may apply, depending on the terms of your individual cell service plan.

Disallowed Content

The BC Government is compliant with all Carrier rules and will not send disallowed content over this service. Only content allowed by the 10DLC and TFN SMS service that have been approved by the carriers will be transmitted
