Special Olympics Canada National Games are held every two years, alternating between Summer and Winter. It is from these results that athletes are chosen to represent Canada at World Games.

COVID-19 Update

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the Special Olympics Canada Summer Games 2022 have been cancelled. Sharing in the disappointment of our athletes and coaches, who look forward to competitive opportunities and the chance to showcase their abilities, Special Olympics PEI has had a strong focus on a safe Return to Play, and eventual Return to Competition, plan. In the meantime, athletes have been encouraged to take advantage of virtual opportunities, including the Wellness Champion program.
