When calling BC Assessment, personal information in the form of a telephone number will be collected (except if the call is placed from an unlisted telephone number) under section 26, subsections (c) and (e) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA) for the purposes of callback identification. A name is not linked to the telephone number, as no other personal information is collected. The personal information collected is used for a purpose consistent with the original purpose for which the information was collected pursuant to the obligations contained at section 32(a) of the FOIPPA. If you have questions about the collection, use or disclosure of your personal information, please contact BC Assessment’s Manager, Information Access & Privacy, by mail (400 – 3450 Uptown Blvd., Victoria, BC V8Z 0B9) or telephone (1-866-825-8322).
BC Assessment provides uniform, fair and independent property assessments to the people of British Columbia. Municipalities, Regional Districts, First Nations, and Improvement Districts (Taxing Authorities) then use this information to set their tax rates and determine property taxes.

Taxing Authority or, if in an unincorporated jurisdiction, the
