Celebrating BC Women in Sport
ProMOTION Plus is the British Columbia organization for girls and women in physical activity and sport. It was established as a non-profit society in 1990 and was unique in Canada at the time. ProMOTION Plus is still only one of three provincial organizations in Canada dedicated to increasing opportunities for girls and women in the sport and recreation delivery system.
As part of the sport and recreation system, ProMOTION Plus works closely with organizations such as CAAWS (Canadian Association for Women and Girls and Sport and Physical Activity), BCRPA (BC Recreation and Parks Association), BC Games Society, ViaSport, Sport BC, Provincial Sport Organizations, the BC Centre of Excellence for Women’s Health, and the BC Sports Hall of Fame on projects, events and programs to meet gender equity goals and support the efforts of communities to encourage more women and girls to be more active more often. The founding members were Bobbie Steen, Marion Lay, Bryna Kopelow, Patti Hunter, Paula Pick and Janna Taylor.
