The Canada Games, held every two years, alternating between summer and winter, are the largest multi-sport event in the country and represent the pinnacle of interprovincial/territorial sport competition. As the best in their age group, young competitors come to the Games having trained long and hard to be among those chosen to represent their respective province or territory.
Since 1967, nearly 100,000 athletes have participated in the Games with hundreds of thousands having engaged in try-outs and qualifying events. Add to that the over 100,000 coaches, officials and volunteers that have been directly involved in the planning and staging of the Games and you have some idea as to the enormous reach of the Canada Games over a proud history.
Canada has a proud history in the sport of triathlon, growing the first provincial, national, and international governing bodies for the sport. First taking place at the Canada Summer Games in 2009, the 2022 Games will play host to three separate triathlon events; a Sprint Triathlon, Supersprint Triathlon and a Mixed Team Relay, all of which will take place between August 6th and August 13th, out of the Welland International Flatwater Centre in Niagara, Ontario.
