Through the Sport Hosting Incentive Program the Township sponsors multiple grants each year, each with a category-specific value of $1000 to $5000, to encourage local organizations to host regional, provincial, national, and international amateur sports events. World-class sport facilities, diverse accommodations, and a supportive sport-centric community make the Township an ideal destination for a variety of sporting events.

In 2018, the Provincial Girls AAA Basketball Championships, BC High School Boys AA & AAA Provincial Volleyball Tournament, and BC Masters Track and Field Championships received grants for their hosted events in the Township.
