Building on ‘88

By 2026, the legacy facilities of Calgary 1988 — including Canada Olympic Park, the Olympic Oval, Nakiska Canmore Nordic Centre and more — will be nearly 40 years old and in need of renewal. Our Draft Hosting Plan Concept describes how we’ll revitalize these well-used community facilities so they can continue to contribute to Calgary’s quality of life long after the Games are over.

Delivering affordable housing

Calgary and Canmore are both in need of affordable housing stock. While both municipalities have plans to address the issue, the Games can provide an accelerated solution. The short-term accommodations created for the Games will yield lasting legacies in both communities by adding new affordable housing units. At least 2000 affordable, accessible, seniors, Indigenous and student housing units will be created in Calgary alone.

Funding the future

In 1988, planners had the foresight to establish a legacy fund that still contributes to facility operations today. We’re also committed to creating a legacy endowment for Calgary 2026 that will fund programs for youth and Indigenous peoples.

Let’s use what we’ve got…

Images of costly, abandoned venues have haunted Games in the past, but our plan reuses eleven existing local venues, as well as Whistler Olympic Park, for maximum sustainability. The only new facilities — a multi-sport fieldhouse and community arena — are addressing community needs that were identified years ago as priorities for our city.
