Q: Are you part of the Government?
- No, we are an independent, not-for-profit society. We manage BC’s unclaimed property program in accordance with an Administrative Agreement between the Province and the Vancouver Foundation, as set out in the Unclaimed Property Act and Regulation. Our history dates to April 2003 when the Province of British Columbia entered into an agreement with the Vancouver Foundation to develop a program to reunite British Columbians with their unclaimed or forgotten money sitting in dormant accounts. These services are provided by the BC Unclaimed Property Society. The Society is governed by a five-member volunteer Board of Directors comprised of representatives from the business sector, not-for-profit, and legal community.
