2019 Canada Winter Games
- In September 2014, Red Deer was announced as the host city for the 2019 Canada Winter Games.
- The Canada Games is one of the largest multi-sport events in the world and creates lasting legacies in the community including physical, economic, social and cultural benefits that impact participants, volunteers, spectators and the community.
- Hosting the 2019 Canada Winter Games requires construction of new facilities, and several facility upgrades and enhancements in Red Deer which will contribute to our community amenities.
- Construction, upgrades and enhancements funded by the capital budget will allow for:
- Biathlon and cross country skiing to be hosted at River Bend Golf and Recreation Area.
- Freestyle ski and snowboarding to be hosted at Canyon Ski Resort.
- Long track speed skating to be hosted at Great Chief Park.
- Short track speed skating and squash to be hosted at RDC’s Gary W. Harris Centre for Health, Wellness & Sport.
- Cultural events and community activities to be hosted at a Games Plaza
