BC Government to Honour Gaming Grant Committments

After weeks of uncertainty, the provincial government has decided to honour three-year gaming grant commitments.

Read the information bulletin here. While this is good news for non-profit organizations across the province (including BCACL and many of our member organizations who rely on the grants), the future security of these grants remains uncertain.

BCACL will continue working to ensure that gaming proceeds in BC are used to help make our communities better places to live for children and youth with special needs, adults with developmental disabilities and their families.
