NOVA Chemicals Donates $2 Million in Alberta

In 2016, NOVA Chemicals announced a $2 million joint partnership with Red Deer College and the 2019 Canada Winter Games Host Society to support and strengthen the sustainability of the Alberta region. The donation will be divided equally with $1 million supporting the construction of the Gary W. Harris Centre for Health, Wellness & Sport and $1 million as a Pillar Sponsor of the 2019 Canada Games.

The City of Red Deer was awarded the 2019 Canada Games in September 2014. As the largest multi-sport event for youth in Canada, more than 3,600 athletes from across Canada will compete for gold in 19 sports. With a forecasted economic impact of more than $132 million, the event will create lasting positive environmental, social and economic benefits for the region.
