The 2019 Canada Winter Games

The 2019 Canada Winter Games was the largest event ever hosted in Red Deer and the largest multi-sport and cultural event to be hosted in Alberta in over 30 years – since the 1988 Olympics in Calgary!

Team Alberta had their best-ever performance at the 2019 Canada Winter Games, earning 100 medals, including a record 36 golds and finishing third overall.

Next up – Prince Edward Island!

In February of 2023 Team Alberta will look to build on the success of the 2019 Canada Winter Games as we head to PEI.  The Island will host the Winter Games for the first time as events will be spread across the province and the host will introduce a new sport to the Games … Karate!

Watch for more information as it becomes available.

About the games

The Canada Games are an interprovincial and territorial sports festival staged every two years, alternating between Summer and Winter Games.

Since the Canada Games were introduced in 1967, more than 100,000 participants in over 40 sports have been involved as athletes, coaches or officials, and over 75,000 volunteers have dedicated their time to staging the event.

Team Alberta was impressive at the 2015 Canada Winter Games in Prince George, earning 75 medals, finishing fourth overall. Team Alberta captured 14 gold, 25 silver and 36 bronze medals at the Games and many of our athletes achieved personal bests.

Competing and cheering alongside Canada's top athletes from a variety of sports created an atmosphere unlike anything I'd experienced.
