The BC Games were originally a vision of Premier W. R. Bennett who believed in providing “an opportunity to bring all parts of BC together". Large and small communities, in the spirit of sport and friendship. Mr. Bennett’s vision for the BC Games has provided a substantial foundation and structure, on which excellence in sport, and community has been and continues to be built.
Established in 1977 by the Provincial Government under the Societies Act. The original mandate of the BC Summer and Winter Games Society was to provide an opportunity for all British Colombians to compete in an organised sports festival. That promoted physical fitness, individual achievement, and community pride. The very first BC Summer Games were held in Penticton in 1978.
With the first BC Winter Games taking place the following year in Kamloops.
