BIKE TO WORK & SCHOOL WEEK 

May 29 - June 4, 2017 

What is Bike to Work & School Week?

Bike to Work Week encourages people to sign up and commit to commuting to work by bicycle for a week. Bike to Work encourages employees to create workplace teams and log their cycling commutes to win prizes and compete against other local organizations. 

We hope people will bike to work not just for a day or a week, but always – making cycling a viable commuting option.

BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL RECREATION PROGRAM INITIATIVE 

Information & Application
 
September 2017 through June 2018

BCRPA is pleased to offer subsidies to help offset costs for before and after school recreation programming for the coming 2017/2018 school year. Subsidies totalling $655,000 will be allocated to communities throughout British Columbia to provide new and/or expanded spaces for before and after school recreation programs, as well as to build local capacity and program legacy (i.e. equipment for continued use). Grants of up to $1500 per program per cycle are available to organizations wishing to expand existing spaces or initiate new before or after school recreation programs for children in the community.

The subsidies will support before and after school recreation programs that focus on physical activity, connecting to nature, outdoor play, and engaging in culture, sports and the arts. 

In addition to program funding, this initiative will also provide training for organization leaders and additional support from BCRPA to help communities build capacity and sustainability for their programs. Online resources will also be developed to provide families with ideas and opportunities to stay active together.
