The Games will feature the nation’s best competitors who will travel from across the country to participate in 26 official events in Kamloops, Canada’s Tournament Capital.

This is the first time the Games have been held in British Columbia since they began in 1996. The entire sporting community is keen and excited to be hosting participants from across the country.


Message from the President of the CSGA

February, 2021

The Canadian Senior Games Association believes there has, never, in our history, been a more important time than right now for individuals to look for alternative ways to maintain their physical/mental programs and social connections. Knowing and understanding what a positive impact it will have on their day to day health and well-being is so critical.

Our mission, as stewards of the Canada 55+ Games, is to oversee the successful delivery of a high quality Games. We strive to offer a blend of events that are physically active and mentally challenging, while promoting the Games as an avenue which encourages active, healthy lifestyles for adults 55+ in Canada.

The next Canada 55+ Games are scheduled for August 23 – 26, 2022 in Kamloops, BC. Our continued work with the Kamloops Host Committee inspires our sincere and optimistic commitment to see this great event happen as originally planned.

While it still appears we face challenges on the road ahead, there are many, many signs to encourage optimism. We hope all Canadians can move forward in the very near future in such a way as to be able to live and enjoy life in a positive way.

We very much look forward to seeing the return of our many past participants/non-participants and hope to welcome others to the next games in 2022 as well as future games.

On behalf of the CSGA, I would like to take this opportunity to remind you to “Stay positive. Be safe. Stay well”. I look forward to meeting you in Kamloops in 2022.

Message du Président de CSGA

Février , 2021

L’Association Canadienne des Jeux pour Aînés croit fermement qu’il n’y a jamais, dans son histoire, eut de moment plus important que maintenant pour les gens, de chercher des alternatives, pour maintenir leur programme de conditionnement physique et mental ainsi que leurs contacts sociaux. Reconnaître et comprendre l’importance de l’effet positif que cela a sur leur santé et leur bien-être de tous les jours, est essentiel.

Notre mission, comme mandataire des Jeux Canadiens 55+, est de s’assurer de la mise sur pied de Jeux d’un très haut standard de qualité. Nous nous efforçons d’offrir une gamme de discipline sportive stimulante, à la fois sur le plan physique et mental, tout en faisant la promotion des Jeux comme moyen pour les aînés 55+ du Canada de rester actifs et d’adopter un style de vie sain.

Les prochains Jeux Canadien55+ auront lieu à Kamloops, BC du 23 au 26 août 2022. Notre travail soutenu, avec le Comité Organisateur des Jeux à Kamloops, nous porte à croire sincèrement et avec optimisme, que des Jeux dignes de ce nom auront finalement lieu, tels que prévus au départ.

Même s’il nous reste encore beaucoup de défis à relever et de chemin à parcourir, il y a une foule de signes et d’éléments qui nous encourage à être optimistes. Nous espérons que dans un avenir rapproché tous les Canadiens pourront revenir à une vie plus « normale » et en profiter, dans tout ce qu’elle a de positif.

Nous regardons vers l’avenir et avons bien hâte de revoir les participants/non-participants des Jeux antérieurs, et nous espérons pouvoir en accueillir de nouveaux aux prochains Jeux de 2022 et les suivants par la suite.

Au nom de l’Association Canadienne des Jeux pour Aînés (ACJA), je m’en voudrais de ne pas vous rappeler de “ Restez positif. Suivez les consignes. Prenez soin de vous”. Il me tarde de vous revoir et de vous rencontrer à Kamloops en 2022.

About the Games

The Canada 55+ Games is a large multi-sport event with over 2500 participants competing in 26 different events. The Canada 55+ Games are open to adults aged 55 years and over as of December 31 of the year in which the Games are held.

The Games focus on the social, physical and psychological well being of the participants through participation in a multi-day event. The Games are held over four days in late August every two years (even numbered years), and participants must qualify through their provincial 55+ games competitions.  

The Games offers opportunities for enrichment, fulfilment and improved quality of life provided by participation in a broad variety of athletic, recreational and social events. Although the very nature of the Games is to declare a winner, or winners, the aspect of winning is secondary to the social side related to reuniting with friends from Games past.

Over the four days of the Games participants are treated to 3 days of competition, Opening Ceremony, Special Events, and a Closing Ceremony with banquet and dance.
