Abstract: In 2017 the British Columbia Bird Records Committee reached decisions on 68 records. Of these records, 56 were accepted to the Main List, and twelve were not accepted (ten due to identification not being established, and two based on unknown origin). Five new species were added to the Main List. Records submitted involved birds seen between 2006 and 2017.

Key words: rare bird reports, British Columbia, checklist
