B.C. celebrates Family Friday, February 14 – Monday, February 7, 2020!

Family Day was introduced in B.C. in 2013 to recognize the great contributions that families make to our lives, our communities, and our province. Supporting families is essential to building strong, happy and healthy communities. B.C. Family Day is a day to get together with loved ones. In celebration of this important day, special events and activities in communities around the province are being held Family Day Weekend for families to enjoy.

BC Family Day event grants were made available with the support of the Province of British Columbia, and delivered in partnership with the B.C. Museums Association, to provide one-time grants to support local museums, art galleries, cultural institutions, and First Nations communities in coordinating, family-based, admission-free community events.

Grants up to a maximum of $1000 were available to eligible organizations to cover a portion of the facility costs, equipment rentals, basic refreshments, etc. of a free community Family Day event
