The Government of British Columbia introduced the BC Summer and BC Winter Games in 1978 as an opportunity for British Columbians to showcase their athletic abilities. As the BC Games moved around the province in a yearly multi-sport event it also became apparent that the Games were about the abilities of the communities to showcase their own talents. Over the years, communities across the province have embraced the hosting opportunity as a chance to showcase the people and facilities in their community to the rest of the province. While the BC Games are a four-day celebration, the legacy of these multi-sport events lives on in new and improved facilities, enhanced volunteer skills, and financial impacts to the community due to participant and volunteer spending.
The Township of Langley will host the 2010 BC Summer Games from July 22 – 25. If you are interested in volunteering at the games, please submit an application. For a list and timetable of the games, please visit the BC Summer Games website for all the details.
