Hi eveyone!

The BCRPA Programmers Dialogue is happening on Tues May 1st 1:45-3 pm at the 2018 BCRPA Symposium. We hope to see you there! There will be a huge amount of expertise in the room and we hope to facilitate an exchange of that knowledge among programmers. We will provide opportunities for participants to learn from other programmers about their program experiences as well as establish relationships outside of their organizations who they can contact with programming questions. Looking forward to seeing you there.

Hi All,

Is there any research showing program pricing comparisons across the Lower Mainland?

I think there is one municipality that tends to do this research, but i can't find it anywhere.

In Canada there is currently momentum around creating opportunities to connect people to nature – Here are some initiatives and resources on the national level that show how we can create opportunities in recreation to connect people to nature – and why it is important.

Risk and Risk Management are BIG topics in the conversation about creating programs that connect people to nature. So I'm not even going to try to cover all of the angles of it in one post -- but I thought I would provide some different perspectives about the value of risk our programs. And then I'm hoping you will click on the "reply" button and add your thoughts to create a conversation.

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.

Hi everyone,
I’m looking forward to our first Programmers’ Huddle being held Wednesday April 27th from 8:15 – 9:15 am (I know… it’s early, bring coffee! LOL!) in the Empress AB room.
