In 2005, the functions and responsibilities of Land and Water British Columbia Inc. were transferred to the Ministry of Agriculture and Lands. As per the records in this series, the new Ministry continued to refer to the office responsible as LWBC during and for a time after the transition process.
Land and Water British Columbia were responsible for managing Crown land leases, tenure applications, grants and sales related to land owned by the Provincial Government. They also managed water resources, including water licenses and allocations. As such, the records in this series mainly deal with questions from developers, local governments, etc. regarding the process of their applications, the possibility to buy leased land, proposals for development, meeting requests or other related issues.
