BC continuing to provide local sports funding

Thanks to provincial support, more than half a million British Columbians have been able to return to sport safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. And now more local sports organizations will be able to provide programs thanks to $1.5 million in additional provincial support.
“Many amateur sport clubs in British Columbia are volunteer based and rely on membership fees, events, tournaments and competitions to fund sport activities in their communities,” said viaSport CEO Charlene Krepiakevich. “COVID-19 has especially impacted their ability to do that. This funding will help local clubs at the most financial risk to maintain operations until, and as, their communities and facilities can slowly reopen.”
Canadian Heritage is also investing $3.4 million in sports organizations in BC as part of the $72-million COVID-19 emergency support fund for cultural, heritage and sport organizations. The additional funding will benefit BC’s provincial, disability and multi-sport organizations. Funding will be distributed through viaSport to ensure support is provided across the sport sector.
