Some 450 athletes, coaches, managers, support staff, technicians and mission staff from across Ontario are set to represent the province at the 2017 Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Competing at the Canada Summer Games allows Ontario's athletes to gain the elite competition experience that they need to excel on the world stage. More than 4,000 athletes from all of Canada's provinces and territories will compete in 16 sports at this year's Games, which take place from July 28th to August 13th, 2017.
Ontario's year-round support for its high performance amateur athletes is part of Game ON: The Ontario Government's Sport Plan. A key priority of Game ON is our Quest for Gold support for athletes, which provides direct funding to high performance athletes to help with the costs of living, training, sports equipment, coaching and travel to competitions. 105 athletes competing at this year's Canada Summer Games are receiving Quest for Gold funding.
