Service Since 1969

Today, with over sixty employees in three different locations, West Coast is considered a pre-eminent resource in the industry.
  • Short Leave Applications
  • March 21, 2023 - West Coast Title Search Ltd is no longer able to act “as agent” for a lawyer for a Short Leave Application. These must be filed by a lawyer personally at the courthouse and the lawyer must be physically present at the courthouse to speak to the matter. The courts are no longer dealing with these matters by telephone or online.
  • Authentication Update
  • Immediate changes pertaining to: authentication of BC Vital Stats documents and, effective July 1, 2022: translations by a certified translator only and new online application form required. 
  • Obtaining Family Orders
  • NOTICE - Family Court Orders issued in Vancouver and New Westminster required an originally signed letter of authorization that enables WCTS to pick up the order on your behalf.
  • Oversized Affidavits
  • VICTORIA - The Court has advised that documents in 3-ring binders or rubber-banded will no longer be accepted when filing Affidavits. The documents must be stapled, use a bull-dog clip or be cerloxed. 
  • BC Corporate Registry
  • Effective April 5, 2022, the dissolution process for corporations will be re-started in British Columbia. Learn more on BC Registries and Online Services.
  • Priority Service
  • March 2, 2020 - As per the corporate registry, Priority Requests are completed within 24-48 hours (business days). Due to an increase in the number of priority requests, the registry is unable to provide same day priority services. As a result, requests for services that require a specific date must be submitted at least 2 business days in advance of the requested date. For non-specific dated requests, any priority request submitted ‘today’ will be processed with either ‘tomorrow’s’ date or the following day’s date.
