Alberta confirms commitment to the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Vancouver-Whistler


January 22, 2008


“The road to 2010 travels through Alberta,” said Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach. “We are the only province to have hosted an Olympic Winter Games—we have the expertise and the facilities to help make the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games a great success for VANOC and Canadian athletes. There will be tremendous opportunities for Alberta in sport, tourism and culture when the world’s spotlight shines on Canada in 2010.”

Some of Alberta’s actions outlined in the accord include establishing a committee of volunteers and an ‘Alberta House’ for the Games, and providing Canadian athletes priority access to Olympic venues in Alberta for training. The province will also promote Alberta’s literary, visual and performing artists before and during the Games.

“As we all prepare to remember and celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Calgary 1988 Olympic Winter Games, what better time to create this link between Alberta and the 2010 Games,” said John Furlong, VANOC CEO. “The legacies of the Calgary 1988 Olympic Winter Games are impressive. Alberta is the training ground for many Canadian athletes who hope to win a medal in 2010 and we are pleased to see such strong support for their Olympic and Paralympic dreams. We welcome Alberta to the team and look forward to learning from your successes to deliver Games that will inspire the world and make all Canadians proud in 2010.”
