“The Canada Games Council is in support of our host governments working together to find solutions that are mutually beneficial to provincial/territorial goals and interests,” says Sue Hylland, President and CEO, Canada Games Council. “We fully support the switch in hosting rotation between Ontario and Newfoundland and Labrador and have no doubts that both the 2021 and 2025 Canada Games will successfully showcase the talent of our country’s top amateur athletes.”
