Team Sask has been involved in the Canada Games since the inaugural 1967 Canada Winter Games in Quebec City. These first Canada Games paved the way to our country's largest multi-sport competition for young athletes. Held every two years, alternating between summer and winter, the Canada Games are a key event in the development of Canada's young athletes. Canada Games athletes are Canada's next generation of national, international and Olympic champions. Each Canada Games includes high-level competition in able-bodied, para, and Special Olympics sports.
Team Sask also competed in the Western Canada Summer Games every four years, from the time the Games were first established in 1975 until the most recent Games in 2019. Saskatchewan has hosted the Games five times: 1975 (Regina), 1979 (Saskatoon), 1987 (Regina), 1999 (Prince Albert) and 2019 (Swift Current). The Western Canada Summer Games saw participation from the three western provinces and three northern territories, and were strategically aligned to act as a stepping stone to the Canada Summer Games, which took place two years after each WCSG.
Saskatchewan's top Indigenous athletes, coaches, and managers also compete at the North American Indigenous Games.
