BC Assessment Innovation Driving Through Osoyoos first week of July

KELOWNA — Digital cameras mounted inside a clearly-marked van will soon be on the residential streets of Osoyoos as BC Assessment continues to use innovation to update photos used for property assessment purposes.

The residential photo update initiative will take street front digital photos of approximately 2300 single family homes throughout Osoyoos during the first week of July. This technology has already been successfully used in communities throughout the Okanagan and across British Columbia.  

“As the Crown corporation responsible for accurately valuing all properties in B.C. and continually serving as a leading source of the province’s property information, we are always looking for innovative ways to provide more timely, accurate, equitable and fair assessments to all property owners,” said Katrina LeNoury, Deputy-Assessor for the Thompson-Okanagan region.  

BC Assessment will photograph only the public street front of a home including the civic (street) address number.
BC Assessment will not retain any personal information related to: 

  • Any images of people on the property. 
  • Visible signage on a residence (excluding street address), including business signs, signs with the names of the people living at that property and any other type of signage that may relate to the identity of a person. This includes vehicle license plates. 
  • The interior of a residence (e.g., images that show the inside of a home through a window or open doorway, or the interior of an enclosed vehicle shelter such as a garage).
