On Dec 15, 2021, the Government of British Columbia announced that it would be the first Provincial government to support the return of Play On! throughout its Province.
Chairman Scott Hill stated: “We would like to express thanks to the Government of British Columbia for providing financial support that will facilitate the return of Play On! Canada to the Province of British Columbia. We express special appreciation to Premier John Horgan, Minister Melanie Mark, and MLAs Greg Kyllo, Mike Bernier, Ben Stewart, Norm Letnick, and Renee Merrifield for their support. We look forward to delivering programming that will make it possible for many thousands of youth from throughout the Province to gather together back into the streets to compete, laugh, and play together again.”
Funding is expected to support events in four BC communities before July of 2023. Event details are being finalized and will be announced shortly.
