The Health Action Network Society (HANS) has been found ineligible for a Community Gaming Grant for the 2019-2020 fiscal year, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing confirmed in an email.

About 40 per cent of HANS's revenue came from a $40,000 provincial grant in 2018-2019, according to federal records. The group has received a total of $468,500 in Community Gaming Grants since 2007.

According to a post on the HANS website , the group received a letter from the ministry on Dec. 18 informing it that its vaccination-related content "did not conform to the Ministry of Health's Strategic Framework for Immunization in B.C."
