Boating BCBoating BC is now accepting applications for the 2020 grant and scholarship program that supports not-for-profit organizations that undertake capital infrastructure projects or events and initiatives that help to grow or increase participation in recreational boating.
 
The Association launched the grant and sponsorship program in 2016, and the initiative has been successful in enhancing boating as a recreational activity in local communities throughout the province.
 
With funds graciously made available from the Vancouver International Boat Show, grants and sponsorships up to $2,500 are distributed to organizations that facilitate and/or improve access to recreational boating in BC; stimulate knowledge and education of aspects of the recreational boating industry; and/or promote, improve or advance boating interests in BC, including participation in boating and environmental stewardship of BC’s waters.
 
“It is our pleasure to help support the industry and increase participation in the boating lifestyle,” said Lisa Geddes, Boating BC Association’s outgoing Executive Director. “There are a number of worthwhile ventures deserving of support that promote water safety, educate or create greater awareness of boating at the grassroots level – and we want to play a part in helping organizations do so.”
 
More than $20,000 in grants and sponsorships were awarded to a number of recipients in 2019, to support activities by the Living Oceans Society and Pacific Salmon Foundation, and sponsorship of the BC Boat Show in Sidney – in additional to support for boating-related initiatives involving the Surrey Sailing Club, Pender Island Junior Sailing Association, Oliver Parks and Recreation, Canadian Recreational Yachting Association, and BC Marine Parks Forever Society.
