The Riviere Qui Barre Arena was first built in 1974 by three separate Societies (Riviere Qui Barre, Mearns and Alcomdale) who came together when they saw the need to keep their kids busy in the winter months when families weren’t in the fields or busy with their farms. The Rivière Qui Barre Arena provides an indoor ice hockey venue for the area. In January 2017, the Government of Canada announced that the arena’s operator, the Rivière Qui Barre Agricultural Society, would receive a $200,000 grant for upgrades as part of a series of infrastructure projects celebrating the 150th anniversary of Canada becoming a nation. In March 2017, Sturgeon County added a further $100,000 grant for the renovations.
