Table of Contents


Hosting BC launched in October 2004 to assist communities in hosting national and international sport events. Funded by the Province of British Columbia and the City of Vancouver, Hosting BC distributed $225,000 to 12 communities to support 17 major sport events that year.

Between 2004 and 2009, Hosting BC provided hosting grants of $2.7 million to 34 communities hosting 197 sport events. Hosting grants were delivered to host committees throughout the province, contributing to their efforts to bring sport events home and to raise the profile of BC communities in the sport tourism sector. Hosting BC was a partnership of the Province of British Columbia, Tourism BC and 2010 Legacies Now.
