The Real Property Division (RPD) of the Ministry of Citizens’ Services provides everything needed to design, set up and manage a government workplace. We are also responsible for the Province’s real estate portfolio (excluding schools, post-secondary and hospitals), office space inventory, furniture procurement, project and construction management, and real estate services for special-purpose facilities (such as courthouses, laboratories and correctional facilities). Our clients include ministries as well as broader public sector entities.
We serve over 26,000 public servants in the British Columbia Public Service and many more in the broader public sector. Our portfolio of 16.6 million square feet is comprised of 7.7 million in almost 500 owned buildings, 6.3 million in almost 600 leased buildings and 2.6 million in over 500 buildings managed by RPD on behalf of other public sector entities.
RPD also oversees the sale of surplus properties on behalf of the Province of British Columbia.
