2022 Canada Summer Games
The 2022 Canada Summer Games will take place in Niagara, Ontario between August 6 and 22.
The Canada Games are held every two years, alternating between Summer and Winter Games. The Games are the largest multi-sport event in Canada and represent the pinnacle of interprovincial/territorial sport competition.
Rugby is making its return to 2022 Games in Niagara with the inaugural women’s Rugby Sevens competition. Rugby Sevens has exploded in recent years, partly due to the recent success of the Canadian Women’s Sevens team – including their bronze medal win at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
