Where better to stage a uniquely Canadian sport and culture festival than our nation’s capital? Where better to embrace the nation-building power of the Canada Games and transform it into a truly national festival, with reach and impact beyond anything in its 50-year history?

 Ottawa is the place.  

We’re a community of sport enthusiasts, artists, entrepreneurs, connectors, and dreamers who will deliver a menu of exciting new offerings to amplify the Canada Games experience for everyone involved.  

The Canada Games are the largest multi-sport event in the country for young athletes, and a premium nation-building event that enriches Canadian culture and creates lasting legacies. This two-week event takes place every two years, alternating summer and winter. The Canada Summer Games attract 4,600 participants from every province and territory in the country to compete in 20 different individual and team sports. The event is a key step in developing the next generation of elite Canadian athletes: at the Rio 2016 Olympics, 64 per cent of Team Canada medalists were Canada Games alumni. Eugenie Bouchard, Andre De Grasse and Steve Nash all participated in the Canada Summer Games. The Games also leave an important legacy in the host community in the form of new and upgraded athletic facilities that benefit athletes and the general public. It is also expected to inject significant economic activity into our community. We are forecasting an economic windfall in the neighbourhood of $130 million. That’s like hosting a Grey Cup and a World Junior Hockey Championships back-to-back! 

Ottawa is bidding for the right to host the 2021 Canada Summer Games. The first phase of the process focused on the readiness of our sport and non-sport venues. The second and final phase of the bid process, now underway, focuses on demonstrating our community support, capacity and readiness to host. Three other Ontario contenders are bidding: Niagara Region; City of Greater Sudbury; Kitchener/Waterloo/Cambridge/Guelph. The Canada Games rotate through all provinces and territories so this is Ottawa’s only chance to bid in the next 20 years. 

We want the Games, and we need your support!
