Under the British Columbia Occupiers Liability Act, an owner or occupier of a property has a legal obligation to keep the property safe and prevent avoidable injuries. This duty applies to interior spaces of a building, and also to outdoor areas, stairways, walkways, and other structures. Owners and occupiers of premises generally have liability insurance that will indemnify them for the damages caused by their negligence.
