The 2023 Canada Winter Games will take place in the province of Prince Edward Island. PEI 2023 will welcome Canada’s top elite young athletes, their families, coaches, and spectators to their island to celebrate sport, as well as PEI’s art, culture, and heritage.
Having hosted the 1991 Canada Winter Games and the 2009 Canada Summer Games, 2023 will mark the third time the Canada Games are hosted in the province of Prince Edward Island.
“The Games are an important part of our Canadian culture, inspiring young amateur athletes while bringing communities together.” “We will showcase our small yet mighty Island with our outstanding hospitality, food, scenery, and sense of adventure. The Games provide our up-and-coming athletes with a chance to compete at a national level. They also help to strengthen our local economy, increase community spirit, and expand volunteerism. I am confident that our Island volunteers, sponsors, supporters, leaders, and athletes, will do an outstanding job in staging the 2023 Games and showcasing all our province has to offer.”
The 2023 Canada Games provide an opportunity for amateur youth athletes to compete in national winter sports competitions. Thousands of visitors are expected to attend the 2023 Games, where athletes will participate in a wide variety of sports.
