Unclaimed Property in British Columbia, Canada

We've mentioned unclaimed property held in Canada before, but a recent article by James Kwantes in The Vancouver Sun has a good deal of information on unclaimed property held in the Canadian province of British Columbia (Canada, like the U.S., has a federal government, and unclaimed property is governed by the laws of each individual province).  The situation in British Columbia is quite unique in that a foundation - The British Columbia Unclaimed Property Society - not the government, has been administering the provincial unclaimed property program since 2003.

According to the article (which is well worth a read), the Society is currently holding over $90 million in funds, including some dating as far back as 1859 (even though BC did not become a province until 11 years later).

  1. Park with the windows down 12 inch (1.3cm) if you're in a safe area. This allows the hot air to escape, keeping the whole cabin cooler. Only leave your windows cracked if your car is parked somewhere where the risk of theft is low. Xiaomi Mi A2 Coolpad Mega 5 vs. Coolpad Mega 5C vs. Coolpad Mega 5M vs.
