Sharing gaming revenue to support local initiatives

Dawnson Creek Community Grants

In 2017, the City of Dawson Creek allocated more than $200,000 of its share of provincial gaming revenue to support initiatives like Step Up N Ride. Since 1981, it has operated a non-profit bus service in the region that provides door-to-door transportation in wheelchair-accessible vehicles to areas where public transportation isn't as robust as urban areas. Another group was the South Peace Community Arts Council, an organization that has contributed to the city and surrounding area since 1969 with support for arts projects that reinforce the cultural heritage of the community.
