2017 Canada Summer Games Sponsorship Announcement and Special Interview

Desiree Scott highlighted her Canada Games experience, shared fond memories and showed off her soccer skills at a reception held this morning to announce three new sponsors of the 2017 Canada Summer Games.

“My fondest memories of the Canada Games are meeting people from across the country who were as passionate as I was, hanging out in the athlete village and being a part of the ceremonies. I can’t wait for Winnipeg to host in 2017 and I am excited for the athletes and the memories they’ll create and take home with them,” said Scott, an alumna of the 2005 Canada Summer Games.

GAL Power will provide temporary climate control services at the Mary Speechly Hall at University of Manitoba during the Games; Johnston Group will present the pin trading centre and the Société franco-manitobaine will provide the resources for the official call centre and information line of the 2017 Canada Summer Games.

“We are honoured to have the continued support of the corporate community as we advance in our planning of these Games,” said Hubert Mesman, Co-Chair of the 2017 Canada Summer Games Host Society. “The three sponsors who’ve joined the Games family today will help us to deliver on our promise of an exceptional experience for the participants and visitors of the 2017 Canada Summer Games.”
