The Alberni Valley Bulldogs and the City of Port Alberni are pleased to announce that the two have officially finalized a multi-year lease extension at the Alberni Valley Multiplex.

“Since our new ownership group became involved with the Bulldogs, getting our lease extended was our top priority.” said Bulldogs President David Michaud. “Having a partnership with the City of Port Alberni is so important. With this behind us, Joe Martin and his hockey staff can set their sights on putting a great product on the ice that the community can be proud of.”
