 Tuesday, March 14, 2023 


Almost 140 sport organizations all over the province of British Columbia are profiting from $1 million in backing from the province for organizing sport-related events that lure visitors to British Columbia and help athletes to contend at home.

Lana Popham, the Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sport said that sporting occasions of all sizes inspire athletes to nurture and encourage others to play.

The World Wheelchair Curling Championships set a wonderful instance of how sport administrations can present new prospects for athletes to display their skills in British Columbia. These events even assist in creating lively, energetic and linked communities, and they also increase their status as a chosen destination for sports.

The province of British Columbia also supports diverse events of local, regional, national and global prominence with the help of two distinct funding programs: the Major Events Program and Hosting BC.

Annually, British Columbia puts in $500,000 in the Major Events Program for significant global and national competitions that attract scores of visitors to the province. This year, eight important events held all over the province were sponsored via this program, comprising the bobsleigh, skeleton and luge World Cups organized in Whistler in January. The World Wheelchair Curling Championships were held in Richmond in March.
