List of land districts of British Columbia

This is a list of land districts of British Columbia, Canada. Land districts are the cadastral system underlying land titles in the province, and used by the provincial gazetteer in descriptions of landforms, administrative areas, and other information. Those on Vancouver Island were established via a Lands Act of the government of the Colony of Vancouver Island, from 1843 onwards; those on the Mainland were established by the Lands Act of 1860 by the Colony of British Columbia.

Note: Coordinates given are only the centrepoints of the land districts as a rough guide to their locations.
