The city will not be reopening the North Peace Arena as scheduled in January.

“Due to the current provincial health orders limiting adult sport and moving youth sport back to phase two, we will not be opening the North Peace Arena as scheduled in January,” recreation manager Vanessa Cumming said Thursday.

"We are prepared to open this facility as soon as these orders are lifted. We do have staffing in place and the facility is ready to go.”

The arena was scheduled to open Nov. 2, but the city later iced those plans and pushed them to the new year.
