St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador is a place shaped by those who have made a home here over millennia. It is a land of firsts — a story of diversity and discovery, steeped in unique cultures and surrounded by natural beauty. This is a place where connecting has changed the world. The 2025 Canada Games invites Canadians to come and connect through friendship, sport, adventure and the experience that is Newfoundland and Labrador. In a place like no other, you can expect to find a games like no other.
Inspired by a focus group comprised of youth athletes from our province, the 2025 Canada Games logo looks to not only capture the vibrancy of St. John’s, but celebrate all that is unique about the city, the province and of course its people.
Using shapes and colours influenced by the provincial flag and elements central to Newfoundland and Labrador culture, the 2025 Canada Games logo features three unique sections. The red reflects the natural geology of NL’s jagged coastline and iconic landmarks; the blue captures the city’s famous architecture while the gold is an illustration of the shared flames of competition, good will, and passion long associated with the Canada Games. All with its clever use of “SJ”, showing that it is rooted in St. John’s, each section of the logo also represents the sporting podium.
Our team is ready to take on the next steps. Look for upcoming exciting news as the 2025 Host Society is formed.
