After winning the bid in June 2011, the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo will host the Western Canada Summer Games in August 2015.
The Western Canada Summer Games 2015 Wood Buffalo continues the western Canadian tradition as a multi-sport event to provide development opportunities for amateur athletes and to help them advance their skills in a competitive, but friendly environment.
The Western Canada Summer Games 2015 Wood Buffalo is the largest multi-sport event to be hosted in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. With 18 sports, 2015 Wood Buffalo will bring over 2500 athletes to our community from Canada’s four western provinces and three northern territories.
Over 14,000 guests will be in our region from August 7 – 16, 2015, including family and friends, coaches, officials, and media. The 10 days of the Games will also include a Festival featuring guest artists, musicians, art displays and cultural performances.
In the meantime, the WCSG Host Society is busy planning for a jam packed year preceding the grand event.
Honouring the heart and spirit of the games, we will enrich lives by promoting personal excellence and creating a legacy for athletes, participants, volunteers and the Wood Buffalo Region.
In sharing the energy of our great northern community, we will create a memorable experience and a sense of accomplishment for local and visiting participants.
