Services still available during temporary Visitor Information Centre closure

New beginnings are starting to take shape for Tourism Prince George (TPG).

On Dec. 22, TPG will close its doors on First Avenue—marking the start to the holidays as well as the Visitor Information Centre’s (VIC) last day at the location beside VIA Rail.

The VIC will reopen again at its new location (850 Canada Games Way) next year once renovations are complete.

“We are very excited to see our new space transform into a welcoming and inviting Visitor Information Centre,” said TPG CEO Colin Carson

While revamps are underway, visitor services will continue in a hybrid format. Visitors and residents will still have access to information on adventuring in Prince George, online and in-person during pop-up events.

“While the physical location of the VIC will be closed for some months, we made it a priority to ensure services will still be available,” said Carson.

The new location is considered a prime spot for TPG as it’s walking distance to 850 hotel rooms, major attractions like Two Rivers Gallery, the PGCCC, Canfor Leisure Pool, local businesses in downtown Prince George and Connaught Hill.
