Until 2006 there was only one bobsleigh track in Canada, located at Canada Olympic Park, in Calgary, home of the 1988 Olympic Winter Games. This meant that most athletes, coaches, volunteers and officials came from the surrounding areas.

In 2006, with the opening of the Whistler Sliding Centre, the BC Bobsleigh and Skeleton Association was created in order to manage the provincial development of both sports.

Since 2006, BCBSA has received funding from many organizations who support the development of amateur sport and specifically bobsleigh and skeleton in the province of B.C. Some of those organizations include: ViaSport, Sport Canada, Canadian Sport Institute, Pacific Sport, Whistler Sport Legacies and the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation.
