Encana Centre name change

Ovintiv name change
The Mirror stopped by last week for a preview.

There are exciting changes happening at the Events Centre in Dawson Creek as the Encana Events Centre signage is taken down and replaced with the new Ovintiv Events Centre signage and brand. 

In 2020, Encana Corporation underwent a reorganization that resulted in a rebranding under the name of Ovintiv Inc. The Event Centre name-change, new branding and signage changes demonstrates the commitment by Ovintiv Inc. to a long-standing naming rights relationship and strong community partnership with Spectra Venue Management and the City of Dawson Creek.

“Having a strong community partner such as Ovintiv is so important and is a great example of partners working together to enhance our quality of life in Dawson Creek. When the time comes, I can’t wait to attend the first big event or concert at the Ovintiv Events Centre!” says Mayor Dale Bumstead.

“Contributing to community life where we operate is a key focus for Ovintiv,” said Mike Selleck, Vice President and General Manager of Ovintiv’s Canadian Operations. “Our investment in the Ovintiv Events Centre aims to enrich the lives of the citizens of Dawson Creek, where our employees also live and work. We look forward to continuing our strong community partnership and to welcoming events back to the space.”

Over the next few weeks, fans will notice the gradual changeover of the building brand from Encana Events Centre to the Ovintiv Events Centre. Starting with the exterior signage, the new logo will populate the website and social media. The website domain will remain

The rebranding, coupled with the recent announcements by the British Columbia Provincial government regarding the plan to reduce restrictions on mass gatherings, has General Manager, Dustin Bodnaryk optimistic about the future and the post-pandemic reopening. Stated Bodnaryk, “Continuing our strong partnership with our naming rights partner Ovintiv (formerly Encana) under a new brand is an exciting step as we gain momentum with renewed excitement and welcome fans back into the venue”.
