Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development - Sport

Aboriginal Programs

The Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development recognizes that active lifestyles play an important role in the health of individuals and their communities. That's why the Sport Branch is working to increase recreation and sport opportunities to Aboriginal people in British Columbia by providing support to Aboriginal organizations in three areas:

  • sport performance;
  • sport participation; and,
  • capacity/sustainability

The provincial government recently announced $1.5 million to the Aboriginal Sport, Recreation and Physical Activity Partners Council whose funds are to:

  • offset equipment costs to increase Aboriginal youth participation in sports, recreation and physical activity (SRPA) programs
  • to develop and deliver SRPA programs identified within each of the six Regional Action Plans, as produced by the Aboriginal Sport Regional Committees
