Building Values in Greater Vancouver


A researcher is looking for data on the value of commercial, retail, industrial, and public sector buildings by census tract, or, even better, by DA, for Vancouver: he is working on a project modeling the cost of the ocean levels rising. Are there any files specific to Vancouver that UBC or Simon Fraser might know about (e.g., tax rolls, etc.)?


BCAssessment would have this data, but you'll have to contact them about availability: <https://www.bcassessment.ca/Pages/default.aspx>.

There is also some property data available from the City of Vancouver: <http://data.vancouver.ca/datacatalogue/propertyInformation.htm>.
