Provincial Gaming Grant review coming to the Peace

 

Although the closest meeting will be in Fort St. John, residents from around the Peace are encouraged to attend.

Skip Triplett was appointed by Premier Christy Clark earlier this month to review the program.

The review is being done to determine how the program is currently operating and people are encouraged to voice their opinions at one of the 14 meetings.

The review will examine existing legislation, the current funding formula, organizations’ eligibility to apply for the grants, the process for applying and the government’s role in the grants.

The discussions will consider input from charities, community members, local government and industry representatives.

The review will be held in Fort St. John on Aug. 23 at the North Peace Cultural Centre.
The final report on community gaming grants is expected to be finished by Oct. 31.
