Canada Games Collection: Interviews

The purpose of the Canada Games Collection is to record and preserve the history and legacy of the Canada Games through the memories and experiences of athletes, coaches, Games officials, volunteers, and Canada Games Council (CGC) members. These interviews reveal the impact the Canada Games have had on Canadian sport, individuals, and host communities since 1967.

These interviews were recorded virtually between July and October 2020 in the lead-up to the Niagara 2021 Canada Summer Games. Shortly after the completion of the interviews, the Games were rescheduled for August 2022.

We invite you watch and/or listen to these interviews and learn about the history of the Canada Games and the impact the Games have had on our contributors, their families, friends, and their communities. If there is a theme or subject you are interested in, type it into the search bar in the top right-hand corner of this page, and see if any of the contributors discuss it in their interview.

In collaboration with the Canada Games Council. This project was made possible through generous funding from Brock University through its Match of Minds program, the Centre for Pedagogical Innovation, and the Faculty of Humanities, and from TechNation.
