Held once every two years, alternating between winter and summer, the Canada Games represent the highest level of national competition for up and coming Canadian athletes.
The Games have been hosted in every province at least once since their inception in Quebec City during Canada’s Centennial in 1967. The Games are proud of their contribution to Canada’s sport development system in addition to their lasting legacy of sport facilities, community pride and national unity.
Snowboard made its debut as a demonstration sport at the 2007 Canada Winter Games in Whitehorse, YT, and became a full medal sport at the 2011 Games in Halifax, NS.
