Western Canada Summer Games
The Western Canada Summer Games were developed for the young athlete who is pursuing a competitive career at territorial, provincial, national and international levels. Approximately 2,400 participants take part every four years, from the four western provinces and three territories.
2027: Northwest Territories
Arctic Winter Games
The first set of Games were staged in Yellowknife, NWT in 1970 and officially opened by former Prime Minister of Canada, Pierre Elliott Trudeau. The Games were a huge success with some 500 athletes competing from Alaska, Yukon and Northwest Territories.
The AWG are held every two years and now include representation from Yukon, Alaska, Northern Alberta, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Greenland, Nunavik, the three Russian provinces of Magadan, Sami and Yamai.
The underlying philosophy of the Games is to involve as many athletes as possible either at the Games or in team trials, and to promote a forum of competition for those other than elite athletes with competitive opportunities in the south. The Arctic Winter Games symbolize athletic competition, cultural exhibition and social interchange.
The proposed dates are March 6-12, 2022
