Community Sport Program Development Fund

The Community Sport Program Development (CSPD) Fund, funded by the Province of British Columbia, makes community sport more accessible to people of all abilities. CSPD Funding is awarded to sport programs delivered by non-profit organizations, which include local and provincial sport organizations, municipalities, and Aboriginal communities.

Eligible applicants are invited to apply for funding of up to $3,000 for new and expanded programs that directly support new sport participation opportunities in their communities in one of two grant streams – Programming for General Population or Programming for Under-represented Groups.


Who can apply?

  • Not-for-profit clubs and associations that directly deliver organized sport programs in their community
  • Municipalities or Community Centres
  • Aboriginal bands or community associations
  • Provincial Sport Organizations (only in the Programming for Under-represented Groups category)

IMPORTANT: Only one application per organization will be accepted. Applicants based outside of British Columbia are NOT eligible to apply.


Grants for Under-represented Groups are intended to support individuals who may have unique barriers to participating in and thriving through sport. These include individuals who identify with the following groups. Girls and women, people with disabilities (invisible and or visible), LGBTQ2++, Aboriginal, those who experience cultural barriers, new comers to Canada, those who are 55+ years or older and those who experience high socioeconomic barriers.
