Strategic Plan and Community Impact Report

The benefits of sport are undeniable—it supports happier and healthier people and better connected communities. It can act as an agent of social change. It also contributes to a diversified economy. In BC, as articulated in BC Pathways to Sport Strategic Framework 2020-2025 (Pathways), participation in sport, whether it is community-based or high-performance competition, can build a stronger province. Further, viaSport aligns with the global sporting movement to contribute actively to global sustainability by ‘building a better world through sport’. The 2022—2027 viaSport strategic plan aligns with Pathways to foster sport participation, athlete development, and sport event hosting.

Our annual Community Impact report measures our success against the goals in our strategic plan and outlines insights and lessons learned. For this 2022-23 fiscal year, with the pandemic in the rear-view mirror, amateur sport faced new social norms, changes in consumer behaviour, operational challenges and emerging opportunities. Taking a collaborative
approach to support amateur sport anchored our approach and enabled our success.
