Pledging our Support to the Arctic Winter Games

Arctic Winter Games photoSince 1901, we have been committed to Canada’s North and are honoured to continue our legacy sponsorship of the 2018 South Slave Arctic Winter Games. The Games take place in Hay River and Fort Smith from March 18 – 24 and will feature 1,800 athletes and cultural participants, and more than 2,000 volunteers and guests from Arctic nations around the world.

“The North has always been a special place for our company – our commitment to the Arctic Winter Games, the people of the North and the communities we serve has never been stronger,” said Nancy Southern, Chair, President & Chief Executive Officer, ATCO. “From Hay River to Yellowknife, Whitehorse, Iqaluit and beyond, it is our deepest privilege to have supported and served this beautiful and diverse region for more than a century.”

The Arctic Winter Games are the world’s largest northern multi-sport and cultural event with participation from the Northwest Territories, Yukon, Nunavut, northern Alberta, Nunavik-Quebec, Alaska, Greenland, Sapmi and Yamal.

"ATCO’s continued investment in multi-sport events assists young athletes in their pursuit of excellence through sport," said Gregory Rowe, President, 2018 Arctic Winter Games. "As a long-time supporter of the Arctic Winter Games, I am pleased to have ATCO as a Legacy Sponsor for our Games in March.  Through our partnership with ATCO, we are well-prepared to host young aspiring athletes and cultural delegates, officials, mission staff, and volunteers, from across the circumpolar world as they convene in the South Slave Region of the Northwest Territories to Find Their Power!"

ATCO is one of Northern Canada’s largest, most diverse enterprises. Our company generates and delivers electricity to more than 30,000 customers in dozens of communities across the North and has a long history of building and maintaining meaningful and mutually-beneficial partnerships with Indigenous communities in the region.
