Under the Information Management Act (SBC 2015, c. 27), records created by BC government agencies that are identified for permanent retention are transferred to the BC Archives according to approved information schedules. These schedules specify how long records are retained by the creating agency and their final disposition—what ultimately becomes of them.
Government Records Services (GRS) is the government agency responsible for overseeing the final disposition of government records. GRS staff appraise, select and document the disposition of government records. Once this process is complete, records identified for permanent retention are transferred to the BC Archives.
