Know Before You Go (COVID-19)
Look at any map and you’ll see us. The largest city in the upper 4/5th’s of our massive province, Prince George is a thriving modern urban centre surrounded by iconic wilderness and world class sporting facilities.
$20 million in upgrades for the 2015 Canada Winter Games and improvements for the 2022 BC Summer Games means that all of our venues meet or surpass national standards.
Most urban centres try to reconstruct nature in their cities. Well, we’ve built a city that flourishes in nature and is a centre for business, a basecamp for adventure and a portal to the north.
With the biggest volunteer rate in BC, nowhere else will you find more warmth in the cool north than in Prince George.
This event is one of Canada's most prestigious sporting events in indigenous communities, attracting 1100 athletes and approximately 5,000 visitors annually. Prince George was set to host this event in 2020 but will instead host these exciting championships in 2021.
Over 3,700 athletes, coaches, managers and officials will participate in approximately 18 sports. This will be the third time Prince George has hosted the BC Games and will bring with it an estimated economic impact of two million dollars.
