About

Our story

In 2023, we're all Islanders.

Anyone who’s ever visited our Island knows that we love to host. That’s why we’re thrilled to welcome the 2023 Canada Winter Games to Prince Edward Island, on the traditional and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People.

From February 18 to March 5, we’ll bring together more than 3,600 participants to celebrate the very best in Canadian sport. This will be the third time our island has opened its heart to Canadian athletes, but it feels just as special as our first games back in 1991.

Mission

We will deliver a top of the podium, world class event, welcoming our nation in an authentic Island way. Across the province, we will create life-shaping Games’ experiences through accessible and inclusive spaces.

Vision

We will inspire and celebrate the realization of great potential, transforming our youth, our community, and our nation to be ever stronger.
