We want to hear from you

We've created a short survey to better understand industry perceptions of the current state of safety in ice arenas in BC. This survey is for data collection purposes and is not intended to replace any official assessments by a Technical Safety BC safety officer.

Thank you in advance for your participation!



F2F Connections

RFABC will be hosting series of focused and timely sessions on challenges and opportunities facing the recreation sector. Many of the discussions will revisit the wealth of information presented through the webinars and allow members to hear from other members. Under the name of our Association's Magazine, the Facility to Facility initiative will connect members through forums, webinars, and meetings.
