City of Vancouver

Maintaining a healthy, socially sustainable city is a priority for both Council and staff. So it is important to give residents opportunities to interact with other members of their communities, and receive support and encouragement from community organizations and networks. At the same time, community members need to enjoy safe, supportive, and healthy environments.

BC Gaming Commission

Gaming revenues benefit people and communities province-wide through gaming grants and other disbursements by government.

Ministry of Children and Family Development

The ministry recognizes that young children’s early experiences and environment lay the foundation of future health, success and well-being. The early years, a period of rapid growth and development from conception until age six, are critical for a child’s physical, social/emotional and cognitive development. To support parents and caregivers of young children, Early Childhood Development (ECD) provides a range of programs and services designed to ensure children get the best possible start in life.
