​Community grants program

Our Community grants program helps make a difference in the lives of British Columbians by supporting the road safety and injury recovery initiatives of community organizations.

Road safety

We consider initiatives that:

  • Make B.C.’s drivers and roads safer for all road users
  • Help improve the safety of vulnerable road users including children, pedestrians and cyclists
  • Help young people in B.C. become responsible drivers, or
  • Provide resources to seniors to support them through the process of giving up their driver’s licence.

Injury recovery

We consider initiatives that support and promote injury recovery and rehabilitation so that our customers who have been involved in a motor vehicle crash have access to the information and programs that will help them live healthy, active and productive lives.
