2022 Canada Games

The Road to the 2022

Canada Games

Held every two years, alternating between winter and summer, the Canada Games brings together over 2,000 able-bodied athletes and athletes with physical and intellectual disabilities for the largest amateur multi-sport event in the country.

The Games span over 35 different events and showcase the very best in Canadian sport. But most importantly, the Games bring us together to celebrate the very best in Canadian spirit. They are a true reflection of what it means to be Canadian and embody our collective belief that we can all do and be something greater — as individuals, as a community and as a country.

Nova Scotia will field both a female & male team to represent Nova Scotia at the games. Please scroll down to read team selection and eligibility details.
