On the courts of the Canada Games Sport for Life Centre, the 2017 Canada Summer Games Host Society and Co-Hosts announced the details of the 2017 Games’ financial legacy. Through a combination of strong fiscal management, excellent planning, and amazing government, corporate, and community support, the 2017 Canada Summer Games generated a surplus of $2.6M that will leave a substantial lasting legacy as the 2017 Canada Summer Games Fund.

“After four years of planning for the 2017 Canada Summer Games, we are overjoyed to contribute a significant financial legacy to Manitoba’s sport community. Programming, financial support, and capacity building within provincial sport partners will benefit young athletes, teams, coaches, and leaders while promoting physical activity and healthy lifestyles for years to come,” said Mariette Mulaire, Co-Chair of the 2017 Canada Summer Games Host Society Board.

The Fund was established to build capacity and support grassroots and high-performance athletes in Manitoba, as well as their coaches, training, and equipment needs. The Fund supports the transfer of knowledge of the social legacies of the 2017 Games for continued capacity building of volunteers, officials, and leaders who are crucial to Canada’s pursuit of sports excellence as a nation.

“We are stronger for having hosted the 2017 Games and are extremely proud to play a part in the enhancement of sport and community programming across Manitoba. The outstanding support from our funding parties, the corporate sector, our volunteers and staff, and the
community as a whole, during The Hottest Summer in Half a Century, has paved the way for a prosperous future in sport,” added Hubert Mesman, Co-Chair of the 2017 Canada Summer Games Host Society Board.

Also released Friday was the economic impact of the 2017 Canada Summer Games, as recorded in the Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance’s STEAM 2.0 reports.

“We are incredibly pleased with the overall success of the 2017 Canada Summer Games,” said Jeff Hnatiuk, President and CEO of the 2017 Canada Summer Games. “From the record-breaking athletic performances and sellout crowds, to the cultural celebrations that were the Ceremonies and the Festival, and the support of 6,000 passionate volunteers, we came together as a community like never before, and delivered one of the best Canada Games in 50 years.”
