Diversifying Dawson Creek
Dawson Creek is more than just Mile ‘0’ on the Alaska Highway. The City of Dawson Creek has adopted a Sports and Event Tourism Plan to help diversify tourism in the city. This is the beginning of a dynamic platform that will be an important contributor to the city’s economy.
Dawson Creek signed a five-year hosting agreement with Hockey Canada. The partnership will include one event hosted at the Encana Events Centre every 18-24 months. This showcase of Canadian and International talent allows the fans to watch the best hockey players in the world in an excellent sporting venue, the Encana Events Centre.
