2015 Canada Winter Games Awarded to Prince George
Friday, September 17, 2010
 
The Canada Winter Games Council announced on September 17 that Prince George, BC will be the host for the 2015 Canada Winter Games. Prince George narrowly beat out Kamloops and Kelowna to host the National Event.
 
The announcement was made Friday in Vancouver under the 2010 Olympic torch which was specially lit for the occasion.
 
Canada Games Council chair Tom Quinn calls B.C.'s' sport infrastructure impressive and says B.C.'s beauty will provide the perfect backdrop for a sensational Games.
 
The 2015 Canada Winter Games will bring together approximately 3,600 athletes, coaches and managers from the 13 provinces and territories to compete in 20 sports. These Games are considered a stepping stone to international competitions and multi-sport Games such as the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Pan Am and Commonwealth Games. As well, this event generates economic activity for host communities (the 2007 Canada Winter Games generated over 100 million in economic activity) and provides important legacies such as new and refurbished facilities and equipment as well as sport and community development opportunities (e.g. volunteers, sport programs, jobs and new job skills).
 
The Canada Games are held once every two years, alternating between winter and summer events. The 2011 Canada Winter Games will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia from February 11-27, 2011. 
 
BC Hockey would like to congratulate Prince George on their successful bid to host the 2015 Canada Winter Games.
