Vancouver, BC – March 13, 2020:
The Board of Rugby Canada has just this afternoon suspended all rugby activities effective from midnight tonight until at least April 10. This supersedes BC Rugby’s decision from March 12, meaning no rugby whatsoever is permitted within this time frame.

For any Clubs or Schools with tours now effectively cancelled, you will be refunded your Rugby Canada tour sanction fee. Please be patient for this to be processed as the relevant Rugby Canada staff deal with this unprecedented situation.
BC Rugby’s Competitions Committee shall meet on Monday evening and will discuss this and possible future scenarios and explore several options to conclude the 2019-20 season for all Men’s & Women’s Leagues. This also impacts various youth and mini rugby programs, jamborees and competitions, and we will connect with those leaders to discuss options.
I wish you all a restful and healthy weekend and will be providing a further communication next week.
Best wishes & good health,
Chief Executive Officer, BC Rugby
