Artistic swimming joined the Olympic program for the first time at the Los Angeles Games in 1984 with both solo and duet events. These events returned to the Olympic program in 1988 and 1992. Since the 2000 Olympic Games, artistic swimming has included both the team event and the duet. Team Canada has won 8 Olympic medals in artistic swimming.
La natation artistique est inscrite au programme des Jeux d’hiver du Canada depuis la toute première édition, tenue en 1967 à Québec. Elle passera au programme estival aux Jeux d’été du Canada 2025, qui auront lieu à Terre-Neuve-et-Labrador.
Featuring notable alumni such as Jacqueline Simoneau, Rosalie Boissonneault and Emily Armstrong, the Canada Games have been a crucial step to many of Team Canada’s Olympic artistic swimmers.
