“Need Assistance Getting a Community Gaming Grant?”

“Let Us Help You!!!” 

Who we are:

The Northern Lights Community Charitable Gaming Association is made up of 37 non-profit organizations from the communities of the Peace River Region of British Columbia. We are located in Dawson Creek, BC and we meet 4 times a year on the 4th Thursday of the month in April, June, September and November at the Child Development Center 9001 10th Street in Dawson Creek, BC.

Purpose:

Our main purpose is to help advise and assist our members complete their BC Community Gaming Grant Applications so that they are successful in getting the grant funding they need, to help improve the quality of life for the people in their area of the Peace River Region in British Columbia.

The areas of focus are Arts/Culture, Sports, Public Safety, Education and Human and Social Needs.

Our second purpose is to be a liaison between the Community Gaming Grants Branch (CGGB) and our members by conveying important policy and regulation information from the CGGB to our members as well as conveying any concerns that our members may have to the CGGB about the online application; and the interpretation of any of their policies and any of their regulations. This includes the reconsideration process if our members’ grants are denied, or any other issue they may have regarding the online application process itself.

Furthermore, we can also assist our members with their gaming event licence applications, and their gaming event reports for the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch.

In addition, we can provide assistance with any form that needs to be completed for the BC Registry Service, and their online service process. This also includes the transitional process for BC Registered Societies, which have to upgrade their Constitution and Bylaws so that they are now compliant to the new Societies Act.

Therefore if you are unsure about completing the community gaming grant application, or about the online application process, we can help assist you, advise you and guide you through the application process making sure you have all required documents that you need and that they are all attached to your application so that your non-profit organization has the best chance to succeed in getting a community gaming grant. If you can not meet with us, we can meet with you.
