2019 Canada Winter Games & RDC
Thank You for Attending 2019 Canada Winter Games
The City of Red Deer, our region and Red Deer College's main campus were electric with energy from February 15 to March 3, 2019. RDC was happy to partner with the 2019 Canada Winter Games as we welcomed athletes, coaches, trainers, their families and fellow Canadians. Thanks to the thousands of spectators who were at RDC's main campus cheering loudly for the athletes who competed in five sports at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre. Our downtown campus, home of RDC's Donald School of Business, was also part of the excitement with the various events and activities that took place in the heart of our city.
RDC is proud to serve our learners and the communities of central Alberta and beyond every day. We were especially proud to be part of hosting this amazing national event, welcoming Canadians from coast to coast to coast. We hope that everyone who visited our College and our community enjoyed their experiences as much as we enjoyed hosting you. We hope to see you again soon!
