BC Responsible & Problem Gambling

The BC Responsible and Problem Gambling Program is funded by the BC provincial government. We use a variety of fun, free and interactive activities to ask educational and informative questions and dispel some of the common myths about gambling. Every participant receives a give away and can enter a draw for a gift certificate.

The activities are designed to help parents learn more about: What is gambling,  online gambling, talking to your kids about gambling and where to get help if a problem exists in the family.


The BC Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils (BCCPAC) is a non-profit organization made up of parents, elected by parents.  BCCPAC works to promote, support and advance meaningful parent participation throughout the public education system in order to advocate for the success of all students in the Province of BC.  We work with our membership, to promote leadership, communication, cooperation, and representation at the school, district and provincial levels.  Learn more at www.bccpac.bc.ca
