About ICBC

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.

Road safety

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.
