Jeux du canada Games

The Canada Games, a celebration of youth, sport, culture and community, is the product of ongoing collaboration between the Government of Canada, provincial/territorial governments, host municipalities, the private sector and the Canada Games Council.

Squash Canada has competed in the Canada Games since 1991 and has competed in every Canada Games since then. The next Canada Games will take place in Red Deer, Alberta in February 2019.  For more information on the Canada Games visit



From February 15,2019 to March 3, 2019, Red Deer will host the 2019 Canada Winter Games.

Featuring 19 sports, over 150 events and a major cultural festival, the 2019 Canada Winter Games will welcome up to 3,600 athletes, managers and coaches and more than 20,000 visitors.

The 2019 event will be the largest ever hosted in Red Deer and central Alberta and one of the largest events to be hosted in Alberta in over three decades, since the 1988 Calgary Olympics.

Forecasted to generate an economic impact of over $132 million, the 2019 Games will provide a stage for Canada’s next generation of national, international and Olympic champions to compete. The 2019 Canada Winter Games is the 27th edition of the Canada Games and the third time the Canada Games have been hosted in Alberta. Previously, Alberta hosted the Canada Games in 1975 (Lethbridge) and 1995 (Grande Prairie). 

The 2019 Canada Winter Games will leave a lasting legacy of new and enhanced sport facilities and volunteer and leadership development that will benefit athletes and the broader central Alberta community for years to come.

The future state-of-the-art Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre/Centre des Jeux Canada Gary W. Harris and improvements to outdoor recreational spaces, such as Great Chief Park and Canyon Ski Resort, are some of the legacies that will be left in the community for future generations to enjoy.

In 2019, the eyes of the nation will be on Red Deer for the 2019 Canada Winter Games and we can’t wait to celebrate with you!
