Over 27 years, BCLC has generated more than $14.6 billion in net income to fund provincial, municipal and community programs across the province.
In 2011/2012, over 5,000 community and charitable organizations received Community Gaming Grants for arts and culture, sports, public safety, environment, and human and social services programs.
