A Message from the Minister

As Manitoba's Minister of Sport, Culture and Heritage, I am proud to express our government's support for the much-anticipated 2017 Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg.

Our capital city has earned a well-deserved reputation as a capable host to many major sporting and cultural events, including two Pan American Games, the 2015 Grey Cup championship and the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.  Our community pride shines through in every aspect of event management, from technical co-ordination through to outstanding volunteer support and memorable hospitality.

The event promises to reinforce our provincial and national pride as we come together in celebration of sport and our country's 150th birthday. I encourage everyone to show their support for the 2017 Canada Summer Games, as Winnipeg continues to prepare a wonderfully warm welcome for all involved in what we believe will be the best games ever!

The Honourable Rochelle Squires
Manitoba Sport, Culture and Heritage
