In 2011, the Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia awarded a grant to UBC’s School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP). This was made to support an Adjunct Practice Professor position which gives planning students, who generally work in a classroom setting, an opportunity to mentor with an Adjunct Practice Professor experienced in First Nations issues and gives the student planners a practical, hands-on planning experience, working in partnership with host First Nations communities. www.refbc.com
The Real Estate Foundation of BC puts the spotlight on some initiatives we have funded that are helping to create resilient, healthy communities and natural environments in the province of British Columbia.
The "water grant" is an annual grant that supports watershed stewardship projects by BC charities. Each year the Real Estate Foundation of BC makes a video featuring the BC Water Sustainability Endowment Fund Grant recipient's project.
