ATCO Place Officially Opened
2007, January 29th:

The 2007 Canada Winter Games held a ribbon cutting ceremony this morning to officially open ATCO Place.  The impressive tent on the Whitehorse waterfront, ATCO Place, is aptly named for its sponsor, ATCO Group. It will be home to the Opening and Closing Ceremonies and the Cultural Festival, all of which are proudly sponsored by Northwestel.

"ATCO Place will be a great hosting venue for the Canada Games. We are pleased to have the opportunity to engage the people of our companies in the North to celebrate in this great sporting event." Nancy Southern, President & Chief Executive Officer, ATCO Group

The Cultural Festival, which takes place from Feb. 28 to Mar. 6, will be offered to the public free of charge. Artists from the three northern territories will provide a mixture of music, dance and drumming, art demonstrations, workshops, artist talks and gallery exhibits in an impressive array of visual and performing acts.

“Northwestel is very pleased to be part of the outstanding group of companies, governments and volunteers who are all working together to make the 2007 Games the best Games ever,” said Paul Flaherty, Northwestel President and Chief Executive Officer. “When the many exciting Games events begin to unfold at ATCO Place and all the other venues, no doubt all Northerners, along with Northwestel and its employees, will feel truly proud.”
