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.
Over 2,700 athletes competing in 18 sports will be in Prince George for the 2022 BC Summer Games. The games bring with it an estimated total economic impact of $2 million (study from Nanaimo 2014 BC Summer Games). Prince George has hosted the BC Games twice before, in 1990 and 1981.
Prince George will host the world’s elite women’s curlers at the World Women’s Curling Championship 2022. While it will be the first world championship held in Prince George, it will mark the fourth World Women’s Curling Championship to be contested in British Columbia.
