Niagara 2021 Canada Summer Games

Niagara 2021 Canada Summer Games

The Canada Games, held every two years, alternating between summer and winter, are the largest multi-sport event in the country and represent the pinnacle of interprovincial/territorial sport competition. As the best in their age group, these young competitors come to the Games having trained long and hard to be among those chosen to represent their respective province or territory. Since 1967, nearly 100,000 athletes have participated in the Games with hundreds of thousands having engaged in try-outs and qualifying events. Add to that the over 100,000 coaches, officials and volunteers that have been directly involved in the planning and staging of the Games and you have some idea as to the enormous reach of the Canada Games over a proud history.

Volunteer Opportunities

At the heart of every Games are thousands of dedicated volunteers who help to provide the best Canada Games experience for athletes, spectators and guests.
