We are excited to welcome participants to the Canada 55+ Games,   August 21-24, 2018 in beautiful Saint John, New Brunswick on the Bay of Fundy coastline. We’ve got first class facilities, a large volunteer base and of course, a huge helping of hospitality! They don’t call us Saint Awesome for nothing!

The Canada 55+ Games is a nation-wide program that promotes spiritual, mental and physical well-being among Canadians 55 years of age and older. More than 10,000 Canadian seniors actively participate in local events leading up to the national games which are held every second year. The first national games were held in Regina in 1998. 

The Games span a wide range of physical and mental challenges - from slow-pitch and curling to contract bridge and darts.  These events bring together amateur competitors who participate for the sheer joy of competition, for the opportunity to visit other parts of Canada and of course, for the fun social fellowship.

 

Greetings from Scott McCain

With only 55 Days left until the Kick-Off to the Games we would like to share a greeting from Scott McCain, Honorary Chair of the 2018 Canada 55+ Games.Please remember to visit our website and sign-up as a volunteer. We need all help possible to make this event spectacular! http://canada55plussj.ca/
