Canada Games Athlete Eligibility Update

November 25, 2020

By: Niagara Host Society / Canada Games Council

In light of the decision to postpone the Canada Summer Games in Niagara by a year, the Canada Games Council (CGC) has been working collaboratively with all affected National Sport Organizations (NSOs) to review each sport’s technical package and its athlete eligibility rules for 2022.

Where practical, sports have adjusted their age categories so that the same cohort of athletes that was eligible for the Games in 2021 will remain eligible for the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games.
