The Canada Games

We’re here to strengthen the fabric of Canada through the power of sport. Coming together every two years, we elevate the best of our nation and spark future generations to achieve greatness both on and off the field of play.

The Canada Games brings together more than 2,000 able-bodied athletes and athletes with physical and intellectual disabilities for the largest amateur multi-sport event in the country. Alternating between winter and summer, they span over 30 different sports to showcase the very best in Canadian sport and spirit. The Games are held under the stewardship of the Canada Games Council who provide continuity, leadership and support. We’re here to foster ongoing partnerships and ensure the Games leave an enduring legacy on communities from coast to coast to coast.

It takes a whole community to stage a successful Games.

These events are made possible thanks to the Government of Canada alongside our Sponsors and Suppliers. But our community wouldn’t be complete without the contribution of National and Multi-Sport Organizations and their provincial counterparts, whose support is vital to bringing participants together under one flag.
