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

November, 2021

The Canadian Senior Games Association has a responsibility to provide an environment that is both safe and welcoming in the matters of protecting everyone attending the Games. To that end, we continue to work closely with the 2022 Games Host, Kamloops, BC to ensure this event will provide a safe environment for all.

We are genuinely excited and very optimistic as we, along with the Host Committee bring these long- awaited games together and are counting down the days to the Opening Ceremonies scheduled for August 23 and Wrap-up Banquet on Friday, August 26, 2022.

The reality of bringing the Canada 55+ Games together in the current and challenging circumstances, requires the need to adhere to all government health policies and regulations as we move forward. Vaccination policies are certainly on everyone’s minds as we move forward.

It is the aim of the CSGA along with the Host Committee to provide, a Games, that will fulfill all aspects of the CSGA mission and objectives. In addition, we will be listening and respecting all health-care policies, protocols, and guidelines to ensure all stakeholders, can relax and enjoy this great opportunity to come together from across Canada.

Registration is currently planned to commence as early as March 1, 2022, and close in May 2022 for most provinces/territories. More to follow.

In the meantime, stay well, safe and in touch with your provincial/territory associations/coordinators for further updates, announcements, and specific details.

Message du Président de CSGA


Message du président de CSGA

L’Association Canadienne des Jeux pour Aînés a la responsabilité de proposer un environnement à la fois sûr et accueillant en ce qui concerne la protection de tous ceux qui participent aux Jeux. À cet effet, nous continuons à collaborer étroitement avec la ville hôte de l’édition 2022 des Jeux, Kamloops, BC afin de garantir que l’événement proposera un environnement sûr pour tous.

Nous sommes profondément enthousiastes et optimistes alors que nous préparons, aux côtés du Comité d’Accueil, ces jeux que nous attendons depuis longtemps et que nous comptons les jours qui nous séparent des Cérémonies d’ouverture, prévues pour le 23 août, et du Banquet de clôture, vendredi 26 août 2022

Les circonstances dans lesquelles nous organisons ces Jeux Canadiens 55+ constituent un défi. Le contexte exige que nous adhérions aux réglementations sanitaires gouvernementales à mesure de notre progression. Les réglementations relatives à la vaccination nous préoccupent alors que nous avançons dans l’organisation des Jeux..

Le but de l’Association Canadienne des Jeux pour Aînés, ainsi que du Comité d’Accueil, est d’offrir des Jeux qui répondront à tous les aspects de sa mission et de ses objectifs. De plus, nous écouterons et nous respecterons toutes les réglementations, les protocoles et les recommandations en matière de santé, afin de garantir à tous les participants la possibilité de se relaxer et de profiter de cette formidable occasion de se réunir depuis toutes les régions de Canada

À l’heure actuelle, nous prévoyons d’ouvrir les inscriptions dès le 1er mars 2022, et de les clore au mois de mai 2022, pour la plupart des provinces et territoires. Plus informations à venir

En attendant, portez vous bien, soyez prudents et restez en contact avec vos associations et coordinations provinciales ou territoriales pour davantage de nouvelles, d’annonces et de précisions

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.
