NORTH DELTA – New Democrat MLA say local parent advisory councils will be able to support extracurricular activities thanks to almost more than $150,000 in Community Gaming Grants funding.  This round of funding is from the Community Gaming Grants program’s parent advisory council and district parent advisory council (PAC/DPAC) stream.

“The Parent Advisory Committees in my community are a great source of support for students and the schools they attend,” says Ravi Kahlon, MLA for Delta-North. “We’re proud to be able to provide this investment of almost $200,000 for 18 PACs in Delta-North to create memorable school years for our kids.”
