Accessibility at the Canada Games

Accessibility at the Canada Games

May 31, 2020

At each Canada Games we strive to create inclusive and accessible environments in an effort to make every athlete, spectator, and stakeholder feel welcome. This includes ensuring that athletes of all abilities are given an equal opportunity to perform at their best while representing their Province or Territory on the national stage. 

We recognize that while there is still room for improvement in order to make the Canada Games, and the world of sport as a whole more accessible, we continue to work closely with our Host Society partners to create accessibility policies and plans in order to make a positive impact and continuously strive for improvement. The Canada Games are our nation’s largest multi-sport event and we’re proud to provide opportunities for able-bodied athletes, athletes with a physical disability, athletes with an intellectual disability, and Special Olympic athletes. 

Here's more information on the accessibility opportunities that we're working on currently and for the next two Canada Games. 

 Mobility & Modified Spaces 
Events for athletes with physical and/or intellectual disabilities at the 2021 Canada Summer Games
Events for athletes with physical and/or intellectual disabilities at the 2023 Canada Winter Games

We are incredibly proud of our para-athlete alumni and we will continually create and refine policies that make a positive impact on Canadian amateur athletes in an effort to create a Canada Games environment that is accessible for everyone.
