BC Place In The Community

BC PLACE IN THE COMMUNITY

There’s more to BC Place than hosting the province's most amazing events on a grand scale. We're committed to doing our part to support the communities we live in.

BC Place continues to team-up with charities, organizations and not-for-profit societies. Through collaborations such as lighting the roof to promote specific awareness days, or by donating tickets to the events we host, BC Place is working hard to help where we can.

If you are part of a community initiative or charitable organisation, and would like to explore opportunities to partner with BC Place, please contact us at stadium@bcpavco.com
