About Our Mascot

Canada, meet Wowkwis.

Say hello to Wowkwis (Whoa-quis), the 2023 Canada Games mascot. Named after the Mi'kmaq First Nations peoples’ word for “red fox,” Wowkwis celebrates the rich history of our province.

A local, who hails from world-famous North Rustico, Wowkwis' favourite colour is turquoise because it resembles the water in the bay, and her favourite sport is ringette. Wowkwis will play a vital role in welcoming the rest of Canada to PEI and showcasing the spirit, heart and spark of the 2023 Canada Winter Games.
