More children, youth will be able to get in the game

VICTORIA Thousands of children and youth will have the opportunity to be physically active through sport, thanks to the B.C. government’s historic investment in Sport BC. “We know far too many young people missed out on game time due to COVID-19, and the health orders that were put in place to protect us over the past 18 months,” said Melanie Mark, Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sport. “I’m thrilled to see that children and youth are returning to the playing field to enjoy the physical and mental benefits sport has to offer. Our government believes strongly in creating winning conditions that reduce financial barriers and open doors so that children across British Columbia have the opportunity to thrive.”
