Canada Summer Games

Since the first Games in Quebec City in 1967, the Canada Games have been held every two years, alternating between summer and winter and their lasting legacies continue to be the catalyst for the growth of sport and recreation across our country. 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.

Celebrating the games’ 50th anniversary:

Celebrating the Games’ 50th anniversary and Canada’s 150th birthday, the Canada Games are this country’s largest multi-sport event for young athletes. Winnipeg, Manitoba will host the 2017 Canada Summer Games from July 28 – August 13, 2017.  Featuring 16 sports, over 250 events and a major cultural festival, the Games will welcome over 4,000 athletes and coaches and more than 20,000 people.

TEAM ALBERTA LOGO

Every province and territory at the Canada Summer Games has official team colors. Alberta’s color’s are blue, white and grey. The blue portrays the vast prairie skies while the grey symbolizes winter. The lightning bolt in the logo reminds us of Alberta’s thunderstorms, but mostly it represents the power and electricity that Team Alberta athletes will possess! The bolt is located on the southwest corner of the logo to indicate the location of the rugged Rocky Mountains in the province. Also, the lightning creates the shape of an evergreen tree symbolizing Alberta’s many forests, in the middle of the “A”.
