Kamloops 2020 Canada 55+ Games is Cancelled

Friday, May 1, 2020


After extensive consultation with the Kamloops 2020 Canada 55+ Games Host Committee, and the City of Kamloops, the Canadian Senior Games Association has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Games and name Kamloops the host of the 2022 Games.

The health of our participants, volunteers, and organizers will always be our top priority, and given the uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic this decision was made with everyone’s safety in mind.

We are confident that the Host Committee can now focus on providing an excellent Games experience for our participants in the safest environment possible.

Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to a successful event in 2022 and the dates will be announced as soon as they are confirmed.

Les Jeux Canadiens 55+ de Kamloops en 2020 sont ANNULÉS.

Vendredi, Mai 1, 2020


Suite à de nombreuses consultations avec le Comité Organisateur des Jeux Canadiens 55+ de Kamloops 2020 et les dirigeants de la ville de Kamloops, l’Association Canadienne des Jeux des Aînés 55+ a pris la difficile décision d’annuler les Jeux de 2020 et de laisser la ville de Kamloops être l’hôte des Jeux de 2022.

La santé de tous les participants, de tous les bénévoles et des organisateurs sera toujours notre première priorité, donc cette décision fut prise en ayant en tête la santé/sécurité de tous et compte tenu de toute l’incertitude entourant la pandémie du COVID-19.

Nous sommes maintenant confiant que le Comité Organisateur pourra désormais offrir à tous les participants & bénévoles des Jeux Canadiens 55+ des plus plaisant et dans un environnement le plus sécuritaire possible.

Merci pour votre indéfectible support et au plaisir de vous revoir aux Jeux de 2022 dont les dates vous seront communiquées aussitôt qu’elles seront confirmées.

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.
