(July 26, 2017)

The final countdown is on

The 2017 Canada Summer Games will begin this Friday, July 28. The Opening Ceremonies begin at 7 PM, and soccer fans can cheer on Alberta’s own Tanya Boychuk, who was selected by Team Alberta to represent our Province as a banner carrier during the ceremonies.

From the caliber of artists performing at the Opening and Closing Ceremonies to the number of spectators in attendance to the quality of competition expected, the Canada Games are a big deal. For many of the participants, this is the culmination of several years of hard work and will be the height of their experience as an athlete thus far. This year’s events will be especially memorable, as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Canada Games and the 150th anniversary of our nation.
