BCLC is proud to give back to the citizens of B.C. and help communities grow. Revenue generated by gambling goes back to the Province of B.C. and is distributed in a variety of ways, including to communities through Host Local Government payments and the Province of B.C.’s Community Gaming Grants program.
In 2021/22, Elements Casino Victoria contributed to the View Royal community and economy in a variety of ways. Here are just a few.
West Shore Parks & Recreation Society
In 2021, the Town of View Royal allocated a share of its funds it received for hosting Elements Casino Victoria to the West Shore Parks & Recreation Society. The not-for-profit received $918,156 to support various programs, services and facilities, including the Juan De Fuca Recreation Centre, the Centennial Centre for Arts, Culture & Community, various parks and trails, and a public golf course.
This funding supported recreation opportunities to people in the community of all ages and abilities.
BCLC is a proud sponsor of Folktoria, an annual multicultural celebration at Centennial Square in Victoria. It is a celebration that brings cultural organizations and dance groups together to perform free for a family audience. Formerly the Victoria Folk Festival, Folktoria is celebrating its fifth year. The two festivals combined have brought 30 years of arts and culture to the community.
