Community grants program
Our community grants program helps make a difference in the lives of British Columbians by supporting the road safety and injury recovery initiatives of community organizations.
We consider initiatives that:
Make B.C.’s drivers and roads safer for all road users
Help improve the safety of vulnerable road users including children, pedestrians and cyclists
Help young people in B.C. become responsible drivers, or
Provide resources to seniors to support them in moving to the next phase of their driving experience/career.
Injury recovery / disability support
We consider initiatives that will help our injured customers — and other British Columbians recovering from an injury or living with a disability — to live healthy, active and productive lives.
