Designation Process and Criteria
Organizations operating at the Provincial level that meet viaSport designation criteria can apply for Accredited, Recognized, or Affiliated status.
This framework is applicable to Provincial and Disability Sport Organizations only. These organizations must be aligned to, and in good standing with, their National Sport Organization. Only one organization per sport may apply for a designation.
To confirm eligibility, organizations are required to provide documentation supporting the designation criteria outlined below.
Organizations meeting our criteria are granted a viaSport designated status, pending approval from the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, Culture, and Sport.
*Disability Sport Organizations require an annual membership of only 100 members and participation in at least three BC Games Zones.
**Affiliated, Recognized, and Accredited organizations have different policy requirements:
|Project Grant Funding||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|Annual Contribution Funding||No||No||Yes|
|Promotion on viaSport Website||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|Dispute Resolution Support||Yes||Yes||Yes|
