 Winter City Committee 

Bookmark and Share

The Winter City Committee has been discontinued.  The Community Enhancement Grants will continue and the information can be found on the EnhancePG page of the City's website.

 This Committee no longer exists.  It's mandate has been incorporated into the Advisory Committee on Enhancing Prince George (Enhance PG).  Please see the Enhance PG Committee webpage here.  

Community Enhancement Grants

The Winter City Committee helped to enhance winter-life for residents by offering Community Enhancement Grants.  These grants were matching grants of up to $1000.  It is often that little bit of "seed money" that can make the difference in getting an idea off the ground and into action!  The projects undertaken as a result of these grants contributed to our community by fostering civic pride and growing a proud and confident community.

Prince George Skates


The Winter City Committee hosted PG SKATES at the Outdoor Ice Oval on Sunday, February 19, 2012 from

1:00 - 3:00pm.  This event was held with the intention of encouraging residents of Prince George to gather to enjoy one of the benefits of living in a Winter City – having the opportunity to skate on an outdoor ice rink.  Hot chocolate was available, as well as face painting and entertainment. 2012 was the second year for what was planned to be an annual event and it was ideal for families and students as there was no cost to participate. Ice Rink Maps showing 22 other ice rink locations were available at this PG Skates event and can still be downloaded by clicking here.

When:        Sunday, February 19th
Time:          1:00 - 3:00pm

Nominate Your Neighbour’s Winter Lights

Front yards and businesses with festive winter lights enrich our neighbourhoods. That’s why the Prince George Winter City Committee asked the public to help recognize those who had taken the time to decorate their front yards (or business frontages), by nominating friends, neighbours and businesses through a fun Winter Lights Recognition Program.


Not a competition, the goal was to let your neighbours know that their efforts were appreciated – as well as encourage others to follow suit. Nominating a neighbour, a business - or even yourself - is easy. Nominators simply printed the Nomination Form, filled it out by hand and submitted the completed Nomination Form to the Service Centre at City Hall. Nomination Forms were available here or at City Hall’s Main Service Centre. Those who nominated a neighbour were given a cheerful Winter Lights Recognition sign to present to their neighbour to display. Now’s the time to say ‘Thanks’ to your favourite neighbourhood winter light display! 

 Nomination forms were accepted until January 14th, 2011.

Purpose of the Prince George Winter City Committee

The purpose of the Prince George Winter City Committee was to promote positive winter life-styles for Prince George citizens and the general community through:

  1. Encouraging the development of winter recreation and tourism.
  2. The encouragement of Prince George's climatic-related economic opportunities.
  3. The importation of experiences and successful technologies from other Winter Cities around the world.
  4. The development of cold climate expertise in a variety of areas (e.g. urban design, transportation, etc.) through liaisons with the business, tourism and education communities.
  5. The development of a strong organization capable of encouraging and hosting educational and informational events such as Winter City Conferences and Seminars.

As a City Council Committee, the Prince George Winter City Committee provided advice and encouragement to City Council, other City Committees, City operations and the Community at Large to stimulate the full involvement of the Prince George Community in our efforts to become a progressive Winter City.

The Committee consisted of ten community at large members of which it was recommended that Downtown Prince George; Tourism Prince George; Prince George Chamber of Commerce; the College of New Caledonia and/or the University of Northern British Columbia and the City of Prince George Administration be represented.

If the above mentioned organizations were not represented or appointed then a Community at Large member would be appointed in their stead.
