How to request archaeological information about a property or area

Qualified parties like private property owners, industry, land title conveyance professionals, and Indigenous, local or provincial governments can ask for archaeological information about, and advice on, a specific property or area. This service is free of charge, and our current estimated response time is stated in the banner at the top of the page.

To make a request, please review these 10 conditions that explain who you can legally share the information with and what you can use the data for, and then submit an online Archaeological Information Request Form.

What if I need the information sooner?

For faster service, a professional consulting archaeologist can also provide you with the information you need. You can find one by Googling "archaeologists near me” or by searching the BC Association of Professional Archaeologists website.
