Hello Everyone,

Do you allow overnight camping in your municipality at your sport centers for meets and/or events? We have a no camping bylaw in place that we would like to review. If you have a bylaw banning or allowing could you please send me at copy at

Thank you.

This newsletter provides an update on the progress of the National Provincial Territorial concussion strategy.

BCRPA is pleased to offer subsidies to help offset costs for before and after school recreation programming for the coming 2017/2018 school year. Subsidies totaling $655,000 will be allocated to communities throughout British Columbia to provide new and/or expanded spaces for before and after school recreation programs, as well as to build local capacity and program legacy (i.e. equipment for continued use). Grants of up to $1500 per program per cycle are available to organizations wishing to expand existing spaces or initiate new before or after school recreation programs for children in the community. The subsidies will support before and after school recreation programs that focus on physical activity, connecting to nature, outdoor play, and engaging in culture, sports and the arts. In addition to program funding, this initiative will also provide training for organization leaders and additional support from BCRPA to help communities build capacity and sustainability for their programs.

It is the time of year to reflect back on the past and look to the future. As I reflected on my year I realized that time has passed too quickly and communication with the programmers who attended the programming huddle at the Whistler BCRPA Symposium has been limited. So, I thought it was time to give you an update on what has been happening in the background with all of the valuable information that was collected on that early morning back in April.


Could you share your city / facility policies that govern the rental/use of public parking stalls when hosting events? I've been sourcing other municipal bylaws and have come up empty thus far.

You can email me at dcousins (at)

Deadline to apply: Monday July 11, 2016, 1 pm PT / 2 pm MT; Registered non-profit and public organizations, school districts, First Nations and local governments are eligible; Recreation Infrastructure Grants is a three-year, $9-million program that focuses on the construction of new and/or upgrades to existing recreational infrastructure in the Basin. The program will support community efforts to create recreational infrastructure that encourages residents to live more active, healthy lifestyles. This includes structures such as backcountry trail networks, swimming pools, ice rinks, curling arenas, sports fields and parks.

Hello all, Would love to get some input as to how other communities are handling advertising/sponsorship in their arenas. 1. What is available for advertising/sponsorship (boards, walls, ice logos, etc) and what is the cost? 2. Who secures the advertising? City employees, minor sports organizations, ad agency, etc? 3. Is there a cost sharing formula between the municipality, minor sports organization, ad agency, etc. Currently the Town of Smithers has advertising available on the rink boards, arena walls, ice logos, and Zamboni.
