Hosting BC program expanded

From 2004 to 2009, 2010 Legacies Now operated the Hosting BC™ grant program to promote sport tourism in the province by supporting communities to host national and international sport events. In November 2010, the Province of BC expanded the Hosting BC program to enable more communities to access the funding.

From 2004 - 2009, 2010 Legacies Now distributed $2.7 million through Hosting BC to 34 BC communities to host 197 sport events. These grants were delivered to host committees throughout the province, contributing to their efforts to raise the profile of BC communities in the sport tourism sector. Hosting BC was a partnership of the Province of British Columbia, Tourism British Columbia and 2010 Legacies Now. These partners were committed to building BC's reputation as a premier sport event destination and maximizing sport tourism opportunities leading up to, and beyond the 2010 Winter Games.
