À propos du Conseil des Jeux du Canada
Le Conseil des Jeux du Canada (CJC) est l’organisme privé sans but lucratif qui régit le mouvement des Jeux du Canada. Tenus tous les deux ans, en alternance entre l’été et l’hiver, les Jeux du Canada sont le plus haut niveau de compétition au pays pour les athlètes de la relève. Ils ont eu lieu au moins une fois dans chaque province depuis leur création à Québec à l’occasion du centenaire du Canada en 1967. Les Jeux sont fiers de leur contribution au système de développement sportif ainsi que de leurs legs durables en installations sportives, fierté collective et unité nationale. L’organisation des Jeux du Canada est rendue possible grâce au dévouement des sociétés hôtesse ainsi qu’à la contribution et au soutien du gouvernement du Canada, des gouvernements provinciaux et territoriaux et des municipalités hôtes.

Le bureau du CJC est situé à Ottawa, sur les terres ancestrales de la nation algonquine Anishinabeg.
