2019 Canada Winter Games & RDC
From February 15 until March 3, 2019 Red Deer and central Alberta will welcome the nation for the 2019 Canada Winter Games (Jeux d'hiver du Canada 2019). The 2019 Games will be the largest event ever hosted in Red Deer and central Alberta and one of the largest events to be hosted in Alberta since the 1988 Calgary Olympics.
In partnership with the 2019 Canada Winter Games Host Society (Société hôte des Jeux d'hiver du Canada 2019), Red Deer College will play a pivotal role in supporting the successful staging and presentation of this major national event. This will include:

- Event Venues and Ancillary Training Performance Venues including short track speed skating, badminton, wheelchair basketball, figure skating and squash, hosted at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre/Centre des Jeux du Canada Gary W. Harris. This facility will also support athlete training and associated needs.
- Athletes’ Village hosting and housing nearly 3,600 athletes in RDC’s residence buildings. Learn full details about the College's Residence Accommodation Strategy and the plans to assist with the changes in service through the Games.
