Province supports Canada Sevens Series women's rugby tourney

The 2017 HSBC Canada Women's Sevens rugby tournament will return to Langford this May, thanks in part to a $130,000 provincial investment announced by Shirley Bond, Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and Minister Responsible for Labour.

 

The 2017 HSBC Canada Women's Sevens tournament runs May 27-28 at Westhills Stadium in Langford, and is part of the HSBC World Rugby Women's Sevens Series, with 12 of the world's best national teams competing. One of the most dynamic global sporting events, the tournament will feature all three medalists from the 2016 Rio Summer Olympic Games rugby sevens debut - Australia, New Zealand and Canada. This is the third time the women's rugby sevens tournament will be hosted in Langford, home of Rugby Canada's Canadian Rugby Centre of Excellence. The tournament will be broadcast nationally in Canada on TSN and will receive international media attention.

 

Today's investment includes $100,000 from the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and Responsible for Labour's Tourism Events Program and $30,000 from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development's Major Events Program.

 

The Tourism Events Program supports events that raise awareness nationally and internationally of British Columbia's tourism experiences and motivates Canadians and people from other countries to travel and experience British Columbia. These events generate tourism and economic activity in communities and regions throughout the province.

 

The Major Events Program, administered by the Sport Branch in the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, supports the hosting of single-sport events that demonstrate economic and community development, sport development and regional engagement.
