CanoeKayak BC congratulates and welcomes the Honorable Ida Chong to her position of Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development!
In Premier Clark’s first address she said, "We will focus on non-profit groups; they create the incredible sense of community that makes each of our lives richer." This focus will most certainly allow Minister Chong to become closely engaged with the sport community. Among the items under Chong’s umbrella are sports and recreation, arts and culture programs, community gaming grants, property assessments, local government, community charter, and film policy and classification.
She takes over the portfolio from MLA Stephanie Cadieux.
