Queen's Printer content is delivered in an "open data format" and data use restrictions have changed
BC Laws is published by the Queen's Printer for British Columbia in partnership with the Ministry of Justice and the Legislative Assembly.
In concert with the launch of the redesigned BC Laws website, the Queen's Printer is pleased to announce the release of BC Legislation in an open data format.
In support of the British Columbia government's Open Data Policy, the new BC Laws delivers expanded content and open access to the data published on the site. All documents on BC Laws are now published under a permissible license, which allows commercial and non-commercial access to, and use of, the legislative materials on the site (please check the license as some restrictions apply).
The Queen's Printer is also releasing access to the API (Application Programming Interface) that BC Laws is built on. This creates opportunities for citizen-led technical innovation and allows for richer interaction with the data. See information on what an API is and technical documentation on its use.
