On behalf of the Government of Alberta, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone to Alberta for the 2023 Arctic Winter Games.
There is a unique quality to the north and northern people.
These games are a wonderful expression of that special character, the diverse cultures represented in this part of the world, and the talented athletes who call it home.
Our province is proud once again to host the Arctic Winter Games and to welcome competitors, artists, performers, coaches, family, friends and fans from around the world to the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. I have no doubt we are in for seven days of thrilling competition. Enjoy the warmth of the local hospitality during your visit, and—if you have time—be sure to take in some of the amazing sights and activities in the area.
My sincere thanks to the Wood Buffalo Arctic Winter Games Host Society Board of Directors and all the staff and volunteers who have worked so hard to make this event a success.
Best wishes to all the participants. Good luck, and have fun!
Honourable Danielle Smith
Premier of Alberta
