Here’s Some Favourite Moments from #VFBS2020
Keynote Bruce MacDonald, CEO Imagine Canada – kicked off the conference and shared with us that it’s not all DOOM & GLOOM for the sector – there are opportunities ahead of us in 2021!
The biggest take-away from his presentation – It is a MARATHON but feels more like a SPRINT – You must take care of YOURSELF, your staff & volunteers – to help you get through this challenging time.
Gaming Grants Update: Gaming Grant Branch Staff provided updates to the program along with Covid-19 related info.

Gaming Grant Application continues under COVID-19
Message from the Gaming Branch
As the province moved into the difficult time of temporarily stopping services and closing operations, BCACG is committed to continue to assist you on your BC Community Gaming Grant applications. The Gaming Branch has assured us that they are continuing to do their part, reviewing applications and disbursing funds.
Please continue to follow your sector’s deadline and submit your Gaming Grant applications as per usual. If you are missing some requirements because of the current situation, such as having to reschedule AGM, thus not having hosted an AGM in time, or not being able to meet prior year level in program participation because of programs having to shut down, please still apply for the grant but explain clearly why certain items or requirements are irregular or missing. The Branch will take them into consideration when assessing your application.
If you have any questions concerning any update on the Gaming Grant or your application, please don’t hesitate to email us at email@example.com or call 604-612-2392.
