Community Gaming Grants Workshops
The Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development is hosting a series of regional workshop events to provide opportunities for not-for-profit organizations across British Columbia to connect with the Community Gaming Grants Branch and to understand the information needed to submit a complete grant application in 2017.
There are no regional workshops currently scheduled. Please feel free to contact the Branch with any questions in the interim.
The workshop presentation (PDF, 2.7MB) can be used as a tool to assist not-for-profit organizations with their applications.
