Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games

2022 Canada Summer Games

Held every two years, alternating between winter and summer, the Canada Games are the country’s marquee event for amateur sports; representing the highest level of national competition for thousands of up-and-coming Canadian athletes.

Held this past year from August 6- 22, the Niagara Region welcomed more than 5,000 participants (including athletes, coaches and support staff) to compete in the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games.

The competition featured 18 different sports, including an inaugural rugby sevens competition (women’s only) and the return of lacrosse after a 37-year absence from the Games (1985). The 28th edition of the Canada Games also marked the third time in history the event has taken place in the province of Ontario and the first time in 21 years.

Creation of the Venue

Canada Games Park represents a unique partnership between Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games, Niagara Region, Brock University, City of St. Catharines and City of Thorold. Each of these partners has provided funds to support this project, and the latter four will be responsible for managing this sports complex once the 2022 Canada Games have come and gone.

Featuring two NHL sized ice pads, a sport performance centre, track and field facility, 200-meter indoor track, NBA-sized gymnasium with four full-sized courts, six competition sized beach volleyball courts, cycling centre and more, the facility was built at a cost of $105 million dollars.
