The Bid Committee, led by co-chairs Kim Keating and Karl Smith, was composed of business and community leaders with deep expertise in a variety of functional areas, seasoned Canada Games veterans, and dynamic young individuals who represent our today and our future. All with a passion and focus to provide the best Canada Summer Games experience for the athletes and all visitors, to showcase our city and province, and to provide opportunities for all to connect, inspire and be inspired. On April 22, 2021, St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador was awarded the 2025 Canada Summer Games. Now the journey begins to prepare to welcome the country to our beautiful province.
