The City of Grande Prairie and CDN Controls Ltd. have signed a one-year naming rights agreement for the south arena at the Design Works Centre. The arena has been renamed to the CDN Controls South Arena.

“Council is excited to add CDN Controls as a partner, contributing to enhanced facilities, programs and well-being in our community through naming rights,” said City of Grande Prairie Mayor, Jackie Clayton. “The City looks forward to offering excellent access to health, wellness and recreation activities with the support of our valuable community partners.”

“We’re elated to see this space carry the name of CDN Controls,” said Jennifer Sanford, Director of Communications for CDN Controls. “This facility will welcome athletes, teams and members of our community—and we feel that welcoming them to the ‘CDN Controls Arena’ is a tremendous fit with the spirit of our community investment program. This sponsorship follows the unveiling of CDN’s new Community Investment Program; one that will see 1.5 per cent of our earnings distributed to sponsorships and investment throughout our branch locations in Western Canada.”

This partnership is a one-year naming rights agreement, highlighting the City’s commitment to creating and fostering good relationships with stakeholders while contributing to enhanced quality of life for residents.

CDN Controls is also hosting a free public skate for the community at Design Works Centre on February 25 at 2:25 to 3:30 to celebrate the naming of the CDN Controls South Arena.
