Special Olympics Canada hosts National Games every two years, alternating between summer and winter. Athletes from across Canada compete in various sports over the course of a week with the goal of achieving personal bests and in some cases, the opportunity to be named to Team Canada for the proceeding World Games.
Special Olympics Games are an important part of our organization’s history, identity, and athlete journey. Our team will be working hard to rebuild our Games pathway so that athletes and District teams can once again reach towards their competitive goals.
