School-based Programs & Resources

The Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch (GPEB) of the Ministry of Finance sponsors the annual delivery of KnowDice—a computer-based multimedia program that teaches students in Grade 6 about the myths, risks, and consequences associated with gambling.

GPEB also created and delivers Gam_iQ: a program for post-secondary students designed to raise awareness about the risks associated with gambling. Available to all post-secondary campuses across the Province, the program is delivered by a prevention specialist, using an iPad application, at an interactive booth with trained student volunteers.

Online teaching modules are being developed for teachers for students from grade four to twelve to compliment the new Educational curriculum in BC.  Launch is expected the fall of 2017.
