    Sport Manitoba Names Phase Two of Sport for Life Centre the "Qualico Training Centre"

    Today, Qualico gave generously to Sport Manitoba’s Canada Games Sport for Life Centre Capital Campaign. Sport Manitoba honoured that generosity by naming Phase Two of the Canada Games Sport for Life Centre the Qualico Training Centre.  Qualico is one of the largest fully integrated, privately-owned real estate companies in Western Canada.

    The Qualico Training Centre is a 120,000 square foot addition to the Canada Games Sport for Life Centre and is a key legacy project for the 2017 Canada Summer Games. Construction of the Qualico Training Centre is scheduled to begin later this summer.

    “We are tremendously grateful for Qualico’s support of our capital campaign,” said Paul Robson, Co-Chair Canada Games Sport for Life Centre Capital Campaign.  “Qualico’s generosity will create significant lasting impacts as we continue to positively build our communities and neighborhoods through sport. While our private capital campaign has been successful, additional support is still required.”

    "Qualico is committed to supporting the services and facilities that assist in improving the quality of lives in our neighbourhoods and applaud those with the vision for this wonderful facility. We are also committed to the redevelopment of the downtown area of Winnipeg as you can see with our residential projects in the Exchange area, so we share a common goal for this project,” said Kevin Van, Vice President of Qualico.

    “The Qualico Training Centre will host community programming for more than 100,000 kids, youth and adults every year,” said Jeff Hnatiuk, President & CEO, Sport Manitoba.  “Helping these kids to learn, grow and be active for life. It ensures everyone, from our littles kids to our high performance athletes, can participate in sport and benefit from all that it offers – on the field and in life.”
