Canadian Tire Corporation Extends Support for the Canada Games through 2027

Ottawa – The Canada Games Council (CGC) is thrilled to announce that Canadian Tire Corporation (CTC) has renewed its longstanding commitment as a national partner of the Canada Games for the upcoming events in 2023, 2025 and 2027.

The Canada Games bring together thousands of able-bodied athletes and athletes with physical and intellectual disabilities for the largest amateur multi-sport event in the country. Alternating between winter and summer, the Canada Games span more than 30 different sports to showcase the best in Canadian sport and spirit.

“Canadian Tire Corporation is here to make life in Canada better, and as passionate champions of sport, we are proud to extend our support of the Canada Games for another three Games,” said Kim Saunders, Vice President, ESG Strategy, Community Impact and Sport Partnerships at Canadian Tire Corporation. “Sport is a powerful unifier that fosters strong, inclusive communities and inspires us to be our best. We look forward to celebrating Canada’s top athletes at the upcoming 2023 Canada Games in Prince Edward Island.”

CTC’s continued commitment will shine through its creation of the Canada Games House in Prince Edward Island, a new, dedicated space to celebrate Canadian athletes alongside their family and friends that will provide a hub to gather and connect throughout the event.

“The Canada Games spark greatness in our athletic heroes and business and community leaders of tomorrow, and Canadian Tire Corporation has been there every step of the way to help fuel those dreams and support the families and friends behind Canada’s top young athletes,” said CGC President and CEO Kelly-Ann Paul. “We are proud to continue our partnership with one of Canada’s most iconic and trusted brands, working towards our shared vision of strengthening Canadian communities through the power of sport.”

"We are thrilled to partner with one of Canada's most notable brands to elevate the power of sport and spark greatness in the next generation of Canadian athletes," said Wayne Carew, Board Chair, 2023 Canada Games Host Society. "We look forward to working together to bring the first-ever Canada Games House to life in beautiful Prince Edward Island, creating a welcoming space for athletes, teams, friends, and families to embrace their Canadian roots at the Games."

The 2023 Canada Winter Games take place from February 18 to March 5, 2023 and will welcome more than 3,600 athletes, managers and coaches to Prince Edward Island to compete in 20 sports.
