WHO WE ARE
BC One Call is a province-wide non-profit organization established in 1994 to provide the excavating community, including contractors and homeowners, with a means to request information on the location of underground services which may be on their worksite prior to any ground disturbance or digging.
BC One Call is the communications link between the excavating community and the owners of underground facilities who are our registered members. BC One Call facilitates this link but does not itself provide location information of buried facilities.
The objective of BC One Call is to minimize risk associated with accidents involving buried facilities. Our members have joined BC One Call because they want to ensure the safety of contractors and homeowners who dig and avoid damage to their property or the environment, and the possible disruption of their service to the general community.
