B.C. accounts for 17% of the 1,300 nationwide responses, representing more than 244,784 members and 35 sports.

B.C.’s results articulate significant operational and financial ramifications due to COVID-19:

  • 98% of B.C.’s sports organizations have been affected by COVID-19;
  • 56% will be impacted into 2021;
  • 63% of B.C.’s clubs and associations cannot access Canadian emergency funding initiatives;
  • 19% may not recover without emergency support, resulting in less opportunities for sport.

Sport for Life will also be hosting a webinar on July 22 as a follow up to the survey results, prompting further discussion on its implications for the amateur sport sector. If you're interested in attending, you can register here.
