Celebrating 50 Years of Canada Games
Winnipeg, Manitoba will host the Canada Summer Games July 28 – August 13, 2017. Featuring 16 sports, over 250 events and a major cultural festival, the 2017 Canada Games will welcome over 4,000 athletes and coaches and more than 20,000 visitors.
The Canada Games are this country’s largest multi-sport event for young athletes and in 2017 will celebrate their 50th anniversary and Canada’s 150th birthday. The 2017 Canada Summer Games will leave a lasting legacy of new and enhanced sport facilities, volunteer and leadership development that will benefit athletes and the broader community for years to come.
The 2017 Canada Summer Games Host Society would like to acknowledge the co-hosts for the 2017 Canada Games, Treaty No. 1, Treaty No. 3 and the Manitoba Metis Federation whose traditional lands and waters these Games will be held upon as well as the many Elders and Grandmothers that have provided the Host Society with cultural guidance for the Games.
Winnipeg is the second city in Manitoba to host a summer edition of the Canada Games after Brandon hosted a summer Games in 1997. We can’t wait to welcome the athletes, coaches, officials and everyone who will be joining us for the 2017 Canada Summer Games on the occasion of the 50th anniversary.
