Call to Action # 88: Sports and Reconciliation (87-91)

Funding to offset costs

June 28, 2019

$1.46M in funding to offset costs for more than 500 athletes, coaches, chaperones and mission staff from B.C. Without this funding, fees would need to be increased and participation on Team BC would be out of reach for many families. Reducing barriers to participation in sport remains a priority for both the provincial government and the Indigenous Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation Council (I∙SPARC), the provincial organization that oversees B.C.’s participation in the NAIG.
