REIBC has received a copy of the Ministry of Finance’s public consultation paper for the draft Land Owner Transparency Act White Paper and are forwarding to you.  The information below was received from the Deputy Minister of Finance, Lori Wanamaker.  

The B.C. government has committed to establishing a registry of beneficial ownership in real estate, as part of its 30-Point Plan for Housing Affordability. The government is taking action to address tax evasion and identify tax fraud and money laundering in order to return fairness and transparency to the real estate market in British Columbia.
This white paper sets out the draft framework for the Land Owner Transparency Act for discussion.
The draft legislation proposes to collect information on beneficial ownership in a public registry administered by the Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia. Under the Act, corporations, trustees and partners (reporting bodies) that hold a registered interest in land will be required to report on beneficial ownership through disclosure reports.
The deadline for feedback is August 19, 2018. Please direct any comments as indicated in the white paper.
