About Play it Forward




The Province of B.C. founded BCLC 31 years ago with the purpose 

of giving back to British Columbia, – and helping communities grow.
Today, $0.88 of every dollar played goes back into the Province.
When you play with BCLC, you Play It Forward.





Expo ’86

The first landmark initiative was Expo ’86, which lottery revenue helped to fund. $250 million was put towards the World’s Fair, which led to massive job creation, tourism and the construction of iconic Vancouver landmarks, like the TELUS World of Science and the SkyTrain, which still stand today.



Health and Well-Being
around B.C.

Last year alone, $147.3 million generated from gaming helped keep B.C. communities healthy and thriving. Funding dedicated to the Province’s Health Special Account supports research, education and patient resources for a wide spectrum of health initiatives for British Columbians.
