Due to a February 6th, 2014 announcement by the Government of Canada to eliminate the Aboriginal Friendship Centre Program (AFCP), core funding that Friendship Centres have been receiving for over 40 years is in jeopardy effective April 1st, 2014. The lack of adequate notice of changes to this long term funding relationship has jeopardized the ability of many BC Friendship Centres to properly plan for transition.
Please join us at one of our 6 Annual Regional Engagement and Planning Meetings!! These important regional forums are designed for anyone involved with Aboriginal sport, recreation, physical activity, and health promotion. Our aim is to engage all communities and key stakeholder groups committed to building healthy, active communities through sport, recreation and physical activity.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE 14 Days prior to Meeting Date For more information and to register please contact: email@example.com
