Their responsibilities go beyond the sport competitions to the overall organization of the Games in regards to logistical planning areas, including transportation, food services and athlete services. “The 2019 Canada Winter Games will bring together the best that Canada has to offer, from coast to coast to coast,” said David Patterson, Canada Games Council President and CEO. “This conference is the first chance of many to show the nation what Red Deer is capable of.

This day was created to support people who lost their lives trying to protect their mother language. As many as half of the world's 7,000 languages are expected to be extinct by the end of this century; it is estimated that one language dies out every 14 days. The aim of CARE is to celebrate the many languages that are spoken in Red Deer and to encourage people of all ages to learn a new language. To commemorate this day, Central Alberta Refugee Effort is hosting an International Mother Language Day Event at the Collicutt Centre, 3031 – 30 Avenue, Red Deer on February 24th from 11am – 2pm. Free Admission. Families are invited to attend and learn words in other languages; play fun word games; discover the many cultures in Red Deer, and win prizes! We will have 16 booths representing many different languages and cultures, hosted by CARE volunteers from many different countries. Participants will be able to play interactive games, answer trivia questions, test their memory and linguistic skills, and above all be introduced to the joy of learning languages in a fun way.
