We will continue to share updates related to the sport sector on an ongoing basis at this webpage. We have also compiled a list of resources on financial assistance and information. In an effort to consolidate questions around grants and funding for sport programs, we have a frequently asked questions page available.

We will regularly update these resources and keep you informed on the impact on the sector through  FacebookTwitter and Instagram: @viaSportBC.

Please take a moment to share this message with anyone you think may benefit from amateur sport-related updates in British Columbia.

From all of us at Bowls BC and viaSport, we hope you are all keeping safe and healthy.
