Council approve a budget of up to S1 million to fund a bid exploration for the 2026 Olympic Paralympic winter (OPW) games. Additional funding of up to S1 million may be released once financial commitments to the bid corporation are secured from provincial and federal Governments. Council directed administration to move beyond the Calgary bid exploration committee mandate to specifically explore venues outside of Calgary as part of an updated master facilities plan in order to reduce the costs of hosting the 2026 OPW games. This report provided Council information regarding the additional financial requirements associated with the increased commitment needed to continue the pursuit of preparing a potential bid to host the 2026 OPW games.
