People will have better access to health and safety services, recreational opportunities and social programs in their communities as Community Gaming Grants will help not-for-profit organizations buy equipment and build or renovate their facilities.

The province’s Community Gaming Grants program is providing a total of $5.3 million to 49 not-for-profit groups for capital projects in 2023.

The Multi-lingual Orientation Service Association for Immigrant Communities (MOSAIC) is getting a $250,000 boost to enhance and expand services by creating a new multi-service centre next to one of its current offices.

“This grant will allow us to open a new multi-service centre, increasing access and improving the variety of services we provide to newcomers of all ages,” said Olga Stachova, CEO, MOSAIC BC. “The expanded centre will allow us to support over 1,500 individuals yearly, help newcomers with employment skills, connect seniors combating social isolation, improve digital literacy skills, support youth mental health and more. This centre will be a lifeline to many.”
