BC Hydro’s quarterly grants benefit Peace Region non-profits

FORT ST. JOHN: BC Hydro is donating nearly $30,000 to support three Peace Region non-profit groups through the Site C project’s Generate Opportunities (GO) Fund.

The program, which is administered by Northern Development Initiative Trust, supports organizations providing services to vulnerable groups, including children, families and seniors.

The most recent award recipients are:

  • BC SPCA for its Fort St. John low income spay and neuter program;
  • Fort St. John & Area Senior’s Care Foundation for its 2019 Support for Seniors program; and,
  • Northern British Columbia Volleyball Club for its skills camp.

This is the ninth time grants have been awarded from the $800,000 fund, which was established in September 2016. So far, $316,489 has been distributed to 34 projects. Applications for funding are accepted on an ongoing basis and funds are distributed quarterly over an eight-year period.
