Awards

Canada Games Flag

The Canada Games Flag was previously awarded at the Canada Games to the Province or Territory with the greatest number of points from all. Flag points were awarded to every athlete in every sport based on performance and participation and then aggregated for a provincial or territorial total. Flag Points are now only calculated as an internal mechanism.
 

Centennial Cup

The awarding of the Centennial Cup exemplifies the pan-Canadian sport development objective of the Canada Games. It is presented to the provincial or territorial team that shows the greatest improvement from one Summer Games to the next or from one Winter Games to the next. The Centennial Cup has been won by 10 different provinces and territories since added to the Games in 1971. 

The Centennial Cup was designed by Mr. Robert S. Kent of Kingston and is modeled after the Katimavik Pavilion at Expo 67. It was crafted in part from 37 precious metals and wood laminations representing 10 provinces and two territories. It was donated to the Canada Games by the City of Kingston, Ontario  in 1970.

Jack Pelech

Presented by the Interprovincial Sport and Recreation Council, the Jack Pelech Award goes to the provincial or territorial team whose athletes, coaches, managers, and mission staff best combine competitive performance, good sportsmanship and a spirit of fair play, cooperation, and friendship. The award is named after Jack Pelech, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Canada Games Council from 1971 to 2001.
