Prince George, BC –  In his final duty as Chair of the 2015 Canada Winter Games Host Society, Anthony Everett, appeared before City Council this evening to announce the Games’ financial legacy total of $1.1-million dollars.

Saying the ‘spark’ for hosting the 2015 Canada Winter Games came from around Council’s table, Everett went on to say it was only fitting to announce the dissolution papers have been signed and the society will cease to exist as of 11am tomorrow morning, ending an eight-and-a-half year journey.

While half-a-million dollars were ear-marked at the outset as a PreGames Legacy Fund, Everett told Councillors the remaining $637-thousand dollar surplus will go to the Northern BC Community Sport Development Society (NBCSDS) to help support athletes, coaches, officials, and volunteers across the region.  The Northern Development Initiative Trust will administer the funds on the society’s behalf.
