Provincial and Community Sport Program Development Funds

Mar 27, 2023

The Provincial and Community Sport Program Development funds are programs of the BC Sport Participation Program (BCSPP), a sport participation funding program which is supported through bilateral contributions from the Province of B.C. and the Government of Canada and administered through viaSport British Columbia.

The BCSPP supports programs that attract children, youth, Indigenous and under-represented populations to lead active and healthy lifestyles through involvement in sport while also helping to support communities delivering physical activity programming throughout the province.

The goal of the fund is to support programming and/or partnerships throughout the province that increases sport participation by introducing sport to new participants, teaching physical literacy and fundamental sport skills and/or reducing barriers to those populations that are under-represented in sport. The intent is to expand programming to attract new participants and increase the number of individuals actively involved in organized sport by creating new sport participation opportunities.

Provincial, Disability and Multi-sport organizations, and not-for-profit organizations that reach a significant or specific target group, and service a significant geographic region or are provincial in nature, are eligible for the Provincial Sport Development Fund.

Community-based amateur sport programs that consist of organized sport activities are eligible for the Community Sport Program Development Fund.
