People who receive services from local non-profits are benefitting from funding to improve community health, accessibility and well-being.

The province distributed over $61 million in grants to human and social services organizations around B.C. over the past year. There are 27 organizations in the North Island that received funds this year, totalling $900,000. Recipients included:

- Campbell River North Island Transition Society- $97,000

- The North Island Survivors’ Healing Society- $94,500

- Campbell River Hospice Society- $76,000

- Pacific Centre Family Services Association- $60,000

“People rely on the services that these not-for-profits provide across North Island,” said MLA Michele Babchuk. “Our government knows how important it is to support meaningful work in our urban centres and our rural communities and that’s why we are investing in the work these organizations are doing.”

According to a press release from the province, the funding “means people can continue access to services such as food banks, children and youth programs, mental health supports, and other services that enhance health and well being.”

Community Gaming Grants also go to arts, culture and sport groups, public safety, environmental conservation, and parent and district parent advisory councils (PAC and DPAC) in schools.
