Many consider Dad the greatest hockey player ever, but greatness was never defined by goals in our house. Greatness meant being the best person you could be, not the best player. That’s what really excites us about the new Gordie Howe Sports Complex. It won’t just create better athletes — it will create better people.

The location (of the new track) is particularly suited to serve a more vulnerable population on our city’s west side. The belief that they won’t fit in and lack of transportation are no longer barriers. The track will be in walking distance. Or running distance!

This world-class multi-sport complex will bring high-level events to Saskatoon like never before, greatly benefitting the economy and profile of our city. At the same time, it will be accessible to people of all ages, abilities and financial means — a hub for health and social wellbeing… a place to play and grow!

As an Indigenous organization, we can say, without hesitation, that the new track’s location will help improve participation rates, leading to an overall increase in holistic health indicators such as educational opportunities, youth mentorship and positive mental health and wellness.

This project will literally change the face of Canadian recreation and athletics.
