Economic Impact

The economic impact of hosting the BC Summer or BC Winter Games is significant and ranges from $1.6 million (BC Winter Games) to $2 million (BC Summer Games).  The financial impact comes from expenditures associated with the planning and staging of the BC Games and from spending by participants, spectators, and volunteers.
Economic impact assessments have regularly been commissioned by the the BC Games Society and/or the Host Societies.  Summaries of these studies are below.
