BC Place In The Community
There’s more to BC Place than hosting the province's most amazing events. We're committed to doing our part to support the communities we live in. BC Place continues to team-up with charities, organizations and not-for-profit societies. Through collaborations such as lighting the roof to promote specific awareness days, or by donating tickets to the events we host, BC Place is working hard to help where we can.

On this special day at BC Place Stadium, players and staff from the Vancouver Canucks, BC Lions Football Club, Vancouver Whitecaps FC and Vancouver Canadians share the field at BC Place with local children, teens and young adults living with autism. Participants have the opportunity to take part in soccer, hockey, baseball and football-related activities led by their favorite star athletes and mascots. The Canucks Autism Network (CAN) provides year-round, innovative, high quality sports, recreational, arts, and social programs for individuals and families living with autism, while building awareness and capacity through community networks across British Columbia.
Kids Play Foundation Super Soccer Tournament
The Kids Play Foundation is a non profit organization working towards keeping kids away from the lifestyle of drugs, gangs, and violence. BC Place is proud to host Kids Play's Super Soccer Tournament, an event that attracts hundreds of local youth and dozens of volunteers to the same pitch where the Vancouver Whitecaps and BC Lions play. The goal of the non-competitive Super Soccer Tournament is to engage inner-city youth by providing a unique experience, which in turn leads to developing a connection with youth at an early age and encourage positive mentorship.
VPD Police Athletic League Sports Day
The Police Athletic League (PAL) is a youth crime prevention initiative that uses athletic, recreational and educational programs as a tool to foster positive rapport and mutual trust between police officers and youths. The basis for all PALs is the belief that children, if reached at a young age, can develop positive attitudes toward police officers and the law. BC Place is proud to support PAL, KidsPlay, MoreSports BC and the Vancouver School Board in their efforts to establish and build relationships between local youth and Vancouver’s Police Department.
