Apparently the legality of recording telephone calls varies from area to area, and I'm wondering if anyone knows what the specifics are in BC? I'm just about to get the ball rolling with my student loans repayments through a collection agency and I want to cover my *ss as we all know how they can be :p

Thanks :)

I'm sure this reply is REALLY late, but if you do happen to read it (or if anybody else was curious)...
In the states these rules vary state to state. However, in Canada we have Single Party Consent as per the criminal code. Section 183.1 to be exact says
"Where a private communication is originated by more
than one person or is intended by the originator thereof to be
received by more than one person, a consent to the interception
thereof by any one of those persons is sufficient consent for the
purposes of any provision of this Part. [1993, c.40, s.2.]"

So in other words, if you record it or have somebody record it, that means its legal. I've heard people try tosay "well recordings arent admissable"... these are the same people that never represent themselves in court, or if they do they never win.

The law says wiretapping is illegal. Recording a call between yourself and an offensive party is not

Pretty much what i said ;)
 
To clarify more, one party has to give consent. So if the conversation is between Party A, and Party B.... but Party C records, Party C MUST have the permission of one of the parties to the conversation.  THat or a court order of course.
