2021 Canada Summer Games

Niagara 2021 Canada Summer Games Postponed Due to the Ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic

The Canada Games Council (CGC) and the 2021 Canada Games Host Society, after consulting with the Niagara Region, the Province of Ontario and the Federal Government, have made the difficult decision to postpone next year’s Niagara 2021 Canada Summer Games. The Games were originally scheduled to take place in August 2021 but, due to continued public health concerns relating to the coronavirus pandemic, they will be rescheduled to the summer of 2022.

By postponing the Games to the summer of 2022, the host will be able to better protect the health and safety of all the participants and spectators, and also deliver a Canada Games that will provide a phenomenal experience for all.
