Video and minutes

  • Lethbridge City Council voted unanimously to provide a letter of support, as well as $900,000 in cash and in-kind services, through the Major Community Event Grant budget, to support a bid for the event commonly known as Roar of the Rings. The event would feature both men's and women's curling, with the winners earning spots at the 2026 Winter Olympics in Italy. City Administration reviewed the Lethbridge Curling Club's proposal and believes it is in alignment with the intent of CC55 Major Community Event Hosting Policy and annual funding allocation to enhance the profile and visibility of Lethbridge, thereby contributing to the quality of life. There is no bidding fee paid to Curling Canada and no money changes hands until all accounting is done after the event in 2025. If the bid is unsuccessful, there is no financial impact for the City. Bids for the 2025 Canadian Olympic Curling Trials must be submitted by the end of the June. Curling Canada will announce the host city in November 2023. The trials would run from November 22-30, 2025. Read the full news release here
