Funded through the Active People, Active Places, BC Physical Activity Strategy, the Sport for Life Society is delivering the Physical Literacy for Communities—British Columbia Initiative (PL4C-BC) in selected communities across the province. The purpose of the Physical Literacy for Communities—British Columbia Initiative is to improve the development of physical literacy through a multi-sector community approach, leading to increased physical activity which positively impacts the health and well-being of British Columbians. The project runs from March 2018 to February 2021 and provides up to two years of support to seventeen BC applicant communities. The first intake was completed in early 2018.
This message is to inform British Columbia communities of the opportunity to apply for this second and final intake of PL4C-BC.
The Physical Literacy for Communities—British Columbia Initiative provides services and funds to the value of up to $50,000 over a two-year period, including education, training and mentorship. In 2019 there will be the opportunity for 8 additional British Columbia applicants to join the current 9 selected toward the collaborative design and multi-sector development of physical literacy.
