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, Chances Mission contributed to the Mission community and economy in a variety of ways. Here are just a few.
Community Gaming Grants
Last year, the Province of B.C.’s Community Gaming Grants program distributed more than $800,000 to several community organizations in Mission, including 15 human and social services organizations. This funding supports the delivery of accessible and inclusive programs and services within the community. Organizations in Mission that received a Community Gaming Grant last year include the Mission Friendship Centre Society, the Lifetime Learning Centre Society, and the Mission Association for Community Living.
Waterfront Region Development
In 2019, the City of Mission supported the development of the City’s waterfront with provincial gambling revenue it received from hosting Chances Mission. This area has the potential to drive economic benefits in Mission and the region for years to come.

Through its GatewayGIVES program, Chances Mission donated funds in support of the MATH Society campaign for a CT scanner for Mission Memorial Hospital. MATH Society has collaborated with the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) to raise a total of $1.3 million to help equip the hospital with this much-needed technology.
