DAWSON CREEK – Three South Peace organizations will benefit from $55,150 thanks to the B.C. government’s Community Gaming Grant program.

Organizations receiving grants:

  • Mile Zero Figure Skating Club – $23,100
  • Chetwynd and District Minor Hockey Association – $22,750
  • Chetwynd Electric Eels Swim Association – $9,300

“Sport is a big part of our community here in the South Peace,” Peace River South MLA Mike Bernier said. “Funding will help all of these organizations continue to provide residents in our region with a fun means of physical activity.”

These grants are awarded under the Sport and Arts & Culture categories of the Community Gaming Grant program, which allows non-profit organizations to apply for provincial gaming revenues from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. Gaming grants are also awarded in the categories of Public Safety, Environment and Human and Social Services.
