CALGARY, Sept. 4, 2014 /CNW/ - At a joint media conference this morning held by the Canada Games Council and the Province of Alberta, the City of Red Deer was named host of the 2019 Canada Winter Games.

In just over four years, the City of Red Deer will welcome our nation's next generation of national, international and Olympic champions as the best young developing athletes that Canada has to offer will converge to compete in Canada's largest multi-sport event.

"The 2019 bid evaluation process was thorough and competitive," said Tom Quinn, Chair of the Canada Games Council. "Both communities put forth an impressive bid to Host the Games and everyone involved from both communities should be proud of what they accomplished. It was tremendously rewarding for the Canada Games to see the Movement alive and active in both communities."
