The Prince George Civic Centre (PGCC) opened it's doors for business on February 12th, 1994 as Northern British Columbia's premiere meeting and conference venue. Owned and operated by the City of Prince George this downtown landmark plays a significant role in the economic and business development for the region as well as serves as a gathering and meeting place for numerous community related events and activities.
The PGCC hosts on average 500 events annually with over 150,000 attendees passing our doors during the course of any given year.
This ultra-modern two storey complex with 40,000 square feet of flexible usable space can easily host any event from a large scale convention to the smallest of meetings . The main floor of the facility serves as readily for large sporting events as it does for conventions. Our 18,000 square foot Auditorium space features a wood sprung floor that is marked to accommodate gymnasium sports such as basketball, volleyball and badminton. A state of the art kitchen outfitted with our exceptionally talented culinary team features some of the finest cuisine in the region.
The PGCC is also committed to operating a "green" facility by aligning our environmental initiatives with industry standards and with the City of Prince George's strategic direction on environmental sustainability. The PGCC is one of only seven buildings in the dowtown core that will be linked to the Downtown District Energy System. The DDES will assist towards reducing particulate emissions, permit the City and its customers to meet greenhouse gas reduction goals, reduce the City's reliance on non-renewable fossil fuels, assist with energy security and stability and help position the City as a leader in bioenergy application.
Through our Food and Beverage Service we are striving to obtain "One Leaf Dining Status" with Compass Group Canada's Sustainability Program. With our green practices underway we are able to assist event organizers towards planning environmentall friendly and sustainable events.
