Making Sport Better
Through collaboration, inclusion and accountability, viaSport leads the development and growth of amateur sport in BC. We help bring more families to the field, fans to the stands, athletes to the podium and sporting events to the province.
Created as a legacy of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games, viaSport British Columbia acts as the Province’s lead agency to steward the growth and development of amateur sport in BC.
To make British Columbians healthier and better connected through safe, inclusive, and welcoming sport experiences.
To increase public trust in the power of sport and create economic growth and social development through greater access.
Black History Month 2024
In the context of British Columbia’s amateur sport scene, we witness inspiring and incredible Black Canadian athletes, coaches, and volunteers. It is important for us at viaSport to create a more inclusive sport culture in BC.
Black History Month in Canada is observed annually in February. This year’s theme is Black Excellence: A Heritage to Celebrate; a Future to Build. This month, we will amplify some voices of Black Canadian sport members, honour their sport experiences, and share resources to help everyone further advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in sport throughout the year.
viaSport has collaborated with over 100 partners since 2010.
Over 21,000 coaches have been trained in British Columbia since 2013.
