Investing in local communities

BCLC’s purpose is to give back and help communities grow. We are proud to support initiatives that benefit communities; help foster stakeholder relationships; and highlight investments in the communities.

The first landmark initiative BCLC helped fund was Expo’ 86. $250 million was put towards the World’s Fair, which led to massive job creation, tourism, and the construction of iconic Vancouver landmarks, like the TELUS World of Science and the Sky Train
