Land and Resource Registry (ILRR)
The ILRR provides a single source of reliable information on 250 different legal
interests on Crown land (tenures, regulated uses, land and resource use
restrictions, and reservations) that is visually represented on a map and is
available to the public using a standard web browser. The ILRR also contains
information on Crown land parcels, private land parcels (where available),
administrative boundaries (e.g. forest districts, electoral boundaries), and
base map information (topography, grids, etc).
This is a big story being led to go to the
Government Agent office through the ILRR website, to sign up as a business user
instead of signing up as a basic user. As basic user you are able to sign up and
see the map right away without visiting the government agent office. To
sign up as business user you need to visit the government agents office.
We were led to believe you will see more stuff as a business user on ILRR
website map ... what more stuff? After signing up and then visiting the
government agents office and being a woman, we won a golf shirt by expedited
mail.... what a waste of money. We don't wear golf shirts, and when we
tried to see more ILRR map info, we didn't find any more info being a basic user
or business user. You have more options in saving and filtering things you find
on the map as a business user, but we believe you will not find any more information being
a business user that we know of. And why don't you need to own a business to be a business
user? Government scam getting people to visit and sign up at the
government agent office for nothing, and then wasting taxpayers dollars giving
away golf shirts by expedited mail!

Website details local conservation efforts to public
Vernon Morning Star - January 07, 2010
The information highway has a new stop for anyone wanting to get
information on conservation efforts in the North Okanagan.
The Okanagan Collaborative Conservation Program has launched a new
“On the site you will find background information on who we are,
links to resource materials and articles on conservation and
environmental planning issues, a list of program partners and a link
to the Okanagan ecosystem atlas which is nearing completion,” said
Patrick Allen, with the group.
“As partners add information to this site on an ongoing basis, it is
hoped the public will continue to check for updates and find the
site useful and informative on local and regional conservation
The ecosystem atlas provides a one-stop site for planners,
developers, conservation organizations and the public that requires
no special software or expertise to access.
It will provide numerous data layers such as
environmentally sensitive area maps, wildlife habitat maps, base
maps, zoning, approximate cadastral boundaries, and links to
regulatory information, best management practices and official
“This allows anyone to identify the location of sensitive ecosystems
and planning information relative to polygon boundaries,” said
“Information explaining the source of the data and its use is also

March 21, 2011 Regional District of Central Okanagan Regular
Board Meeting Minutes
5.1 Okanagan Indian
Band (ONIB) - Councillors Raymond Marchand and Tim Isaac re: Addition to
Okanagan IR#1 - Laura Demers Okanagan Indian Band in its letter of February 4,
2011 requested a delegation to discuss the Regional District's opposition to the
addition of the subject lands to I. R. No.1. The opposition to the addition was
provided to Indian and
Northern Affairs Canada in 2009.
Councillor Marchand addressed the Board
- ONIB wants better dialogue between the two governments
- Four Regional Board members supported the addition to reserve, and now
requests a new resolution of support in light of information provided today.
- This is a result of a specific claim filed over two decades ago. Believe
portions of land were illegally excluded.
- Land which is being added to reserve constitutes a relatively small acreage.
Land is being returned as a result of unlawfully excluded from reserve before
the regional district existed.
- Integral part of claim Canada conceded was valid.
- Want to work out practical solutions from issues raised in Board resolution.
-No forestry road in the area.
-Zoning issues--will not be subject to ALR and zoning requirements.
don't apply to reserve lands. Willing to sit down to address issues how lands
will be developed.
- Willing to sit down to work out a protocol between the governments to help
harmonize land use decisions.
- Want contiguous Band lands. Canada said that the lands are to be touching but
they are not - Canada considers in this instance they are.
- The North Okanagan Regional District is not opposed to the addition to lands.
Very positive that dialogue has started.
Is it possible for the Band to hold an information meeting for residents in the
area? Yes, this could be done.
Majority of the land is within the North Okanagan Regional District.
Residents have expressed concern in the past with regard to road access.
Information blocks have been done in the past regarding other issues.
ONIB has never blocked road access.
Staff reviewed the lots identified. Lots
are privately owned by the band. One lot is in the ALR. ONIB bought the lands
and now want to move them to reserve status.
How is the land contiguous? They aren't in this area but it is as a whole these
are remnant pieces.
The error by Canada was made off Rattlesnake Point not
these lands. In a land settlement with Canada monies were offered by Canada but
the Band asked for lands to be moved to reserve status. The Band is now
requesting other lands be added to reserve. The Band bought the lands and now
want them transferred to reserve.
Need staff report to revisit the issue and
report back on ie: historical information; confirm process currently in place;
confirm road access issues; what future land use is being planned by the Band;
and what public consultation process is planned by the Band.
Is there a timeline for response? June 12 is the deadline for ONIB so a response
would be appreciated as soon as possible.
The delegation was thanked for their
presentation. Chair Hobson noted the Regional District is willing to continue
discussions with the Band that can lead to establish principles and benchmarks
for a Protocol Agreement between the two governments, The Administrator will
contact ONIB for discuss this further.
THAT the February 4, 2011 letter from the Okanagan Indian Band regarding
Addition to Okanagan I.R #1 be received;
AND THAT the Regional Board
reconsider its original resolution #153/09 in opposition to the addition of the
subject lands to I,R No, 1;
AND FURTHER THAT staff be directed to provide a
report on the issues raised on June 22, 2009 and further considering the items
raised by the Board and the Okanagan Indian Band at the March 21, 2011 meeting.

|State-of-the-Art Online Map System Unveiled
A new, more
powerful and functional mapping system is now available for visitors
to the Regional District of Central Okanagan website.
Communications Coordinator Bruce Smith says, “The
new Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
program was developed by our staff, using the latest
industry leading technology from the Environmental Systems Research
Institute (ESRI) and using the Microsoft Silverlight development
Information Services Manager Richard Bruneau adds, “By utilizing
Silverlight, online map users will be able to take full advantage of
its powerful development tools, providing an engaging and
interactive internet mapping experience.”
Bruneau says, “The new online GIS system uses the latest technology
and replaces three older applications and an aging internal
application. This will benefit the wide range of people that use the
online mapping service, as well as Regional District staff and our
Regional GIS partners from the municipalities of Lake Country,
Peachland and the Westbank First Nation.”
Some of the great new features offered include:
Easy map navigation and searches for properties, roads or parks
View details of any map feature
Fully cached orthophotos for fast and seamless display
The ability to compare current with past orthophotos to view
Using a simple drag and drop the industry leading Document
Management System allows users to link any number and type of
document to any number of map features
For those who may not want to immediately move to the new map
system, links will be left in place until the New Year to the older
programs. The online maps are a very popular feature of the Regional
District website. More than 37,000 visits have been logged so far
this year to the GIS maps from over 11,000 unique visitors. The maps
are often used by real estate professionals, consultants and staff
and students from the University of British Columbia Okanagan and
