Welcome to the Sport Branch Website

“Participation in sport and physical activity is valued and embraced as a way of life in British Columbia, sustained by a province-wide, balanced commitment to healthy, active lifestyles and the ethical pursuit of excellence.”
    -BC’s Vision for Sport and Physical Activity

British Columbia has a long-standing tradition of sport excellence and is Canada’s most physically active province.

Our strong sport and physical activity system is built from the hard work and commitment of volunteers, national and provincial sport and recreation organizations, coaches, athletes, participants, officials and partners. Please see “Partners and Links” for a list of some of the organizations that provide sport and recreation programs and services in British Columbia.

The Sport Branch develops, implements and partners in strategies to address systemic issues and opportunities for sport and physical activity. These strategies focus on the settings in which sport and physical activity occur – communities, schools, homes, workplaces and organized sport. The Branch develops, implements and advises on public policy that guides government decision-making in respect to sport and physical activity. It also develops and maintains inter- and intra-government partnerships to ensure that B.C.’s sport interests are well-represented in health, social and economic activities.
