BC Disability Sports


Who We Are...

In 1981 all the "movers and shakers" for sport and recreation for people with a disability in British Columbia were brought together by the Recreation and Sport Branch of the provincial government to form an umbrella group, the British Columbia Sport and Recreation Council for the Disabled. This was done with the administrative assistance of the B.C. Recreation and Parks Association who also provided the first Chair.

In 1986, the organization was registered provincially and the name was changed to the British Columbia Sport & Fitness Council for the Disabled. The members of the Council were the disability-specific sport organizations and sport-specific organizations persons with a disability, and a small number of advisory members.

Today, BC Disability Sports is a federation of nine active, fully functioning, provincial sport governing bodies who are responsible for providing competitive and recreational programs to meet the needs and demands of their members.
