Ringette receives funding

Provincial government provides $6,000 Community Gaming Grant

The Comox Valley Ringette Association is skating on firmer ice.

Comox Valley MLA Don McRae announced July 26 that the Ministry of Community, Sport, and Cultural Development is providing a $6,000 Community Gaming Grant for the group.

“The Comox Valley Ringette Association offers people of all ages a fun means of exercise through their fast-paced team sport,” McRae said. “This funding will give the ringette association the resources needed to let ringette players continue to enjoy their game.”

Across British Columbia, 42 recipients will share $1,363,010 in the latest rounds of grants, the BC Liberals noted in a press release. Recipients of these grants include programs for sport, and arts and culture, among others.

Community Gaming Grants help local groups provide important services for B.C. families, the Liberals noted in their press release.

Community Gaming Grants allow non-profit organizations to apply for provincial gaming revenues.  Last fiscal year, in 2012/13, our government distributed a total of $135 million in gaming grants for eligible community programs and services.  Approximately 5,300 community groups benefited from funding during 2012/13.
