BC celebrated Family Day weekend Friday, February 14 — Monday, February 17, 2020

Family Day was introduced in BC in 2013 to recognize the great contributions that families make to our lives, our communities and our province. Supporting families to be strong, happy and healthy is essential to building a healthy BC. Family Day is a day to get together with all the people who, for each of us, make up our family. Communities around the province created special events and activities to help bring families and communities together.

Event Grants

Event grants were made available with the support of the BC government and the Government of Canada, and delivered in partnership with BCRPA, to support local governments and First Nations Bands/Councils in coordinating family-based, admission-free events in celebration of BC Family Day.
