Where can I get an Individual or Corporate Free Miner Certificate?
If this is the first-time you have applied for a Free Miner Certificate (FMC), you can go to any Mineral Titles Branch office
, Provincial Service BC (Government Agent) office
or FrontCounter BC office
and fill out an application form for an individual or company FMC. Staff at these offices will enter the required information into the Mineral Titles Online (MTO) registry and you will be issued an FMC and client number.
Alternatively, you can print a copy of the individual or corporate FMC forms
and mail in your completed application. Send your form along with a cheque in the amount of $25.00 for an individual or $500.00 for a company, made payable to the Minister of Finance, to: Mineral Titles Branch
300-865 Hornby Street
In addition to applying for an FMC, you will also need a business
BCeID account. It is highly recommended that you apply for a business
BCeID first as you will not be able to access MTO without it. Please review our FAQ's on applying for a business BCeID
If you are attempting to renew your existing FMC, please see question 7 below. For more information, see Information Update #1 - Free Miner Certificate
