CBC Sports will provide live coverage of the upcoming Canada Games
The next wave of Canadian athletes will air on CBC Sports.
The Canada Games, featuring 5,000 young athletes competing interprovincially in 18 different sports, are taking place in Niagara, Ontario, from August 6-21. Nunavut is also sending its largest team yet with 60 participants.
Over 100 hours of free live coverage will be available on CBC Sports platforms including CBCSports.ca, CBC Gem, the free CBC Sports app and Radio-Canada Sports.
« We are thrilled to provide this opportunity to watch Canada’s largest multi-sport event in a way never seen before, » said Doug Hamilton, Chairman of the Niagara 2022 Host Society Board of Directors. “With the extensive coverage we will provide, with the support of Niagara College and CBC Sports, audiences will be able to enjoy all of the best moments from the 2022 Canada Games.”

The 2022 Canada Games feature the first-ever women’s lacrosse competition, the return of men’s lacrosse after 37 years and an inaugural rugby sevens tournament.
The 28th edition of the event is also only the third to be held in Ontario. Previous Canada Games have featured the likes of future superstars Sidney Crosby, Hayley Wickenheiser and Andre De Grasse.
Additionally, over 90% of sports will be available on a new streaming platform at niagara2022games.ca/watch.
The contest was originally scheduled to take place on the same dates in 2021, but was postponed due to COVID-19. As a result, the Canada Winter Games are only months away and are expected to begin in Prince Edward Island in February. The Games are usually spaced two years apart.
