On April 5, 2016, BCAA introduced BCAA Play Here, a multi-year, community investment initiative to protect kids in B.C. by rejuvenating play areas to make them safer and more enjoyable for children and their families.  British Columbians are encouraged to nominate and later vote for a play space in need of an upgrade.  At the end of the contest period, the winning play space will receive a revitalization worth up to $100,000.

Shawn Pettipas, BCAA’s Manager, Community Impact, explains, “We’re looking for play areas around the province that are in need of rejuvenation. It could be a park, a playground, a sporting facility or an after-school study area.  If it’s a place where kids can spend their time and develop valuable life skills, we want to hear about how it can be improved to make it a safer, better place for kids to play.”
