Three high profile sporting events could be coming to Regina including the 2018 Tim Hortons Brier.
The city is also eyeing another Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling – Tour Challenge event for next year, along with the 2017 Skate Canada International.
This week the executive committee will discuss the city’s willingness to put up a couple hundred thousand dollars to help put on the events, but only if bids are successful.
The city’s report recommends offering a $100,000 cash grant and $50,000 in city services for the Brier, $50,000 in funding for the Skate Canada International event and $25,000 for the Grand Slam of Curling.
The city report says the economic impact for the Brier could be as high as $15 million dollars.
