The MNP Canada Games Torch Relay is a significant element of the Canada Games and has united communities across the nation for the past 51 years. Since Prince George hosted the Canada Winter Games in 2015, it's our turn for the torchbearers to relay across our community on Saturday, December 8! Attend this event to re-ignite the spirit of the Games in this celebration of amateur sport in our community!
The MNP Canada Games Torch Relay starts at the Prince George Civic Centre at 11 a.m. and will wind its way through downtown before returning to the Civic Centre just before noon for the official torch ceremony and a family-friendly community celebration. View the Torch Relay route on the map located on the event poster.
Visit the event and enjoy free coffee, hot chocolate, snacks and giveaways and a chance to get your photo with the torch and the Canada Games mascot - Waskasoo – along with other mascot friends including Rowdy Cat and Fraser. Local sports clubs will also be there to share information and host games and sport demonstrations including curling, hockey, ringette, martial arts, and more.
The Torch Relay officially starts in Ottawa from the Centennial Flame on Parliament Hill and will visit 48 communities across Canada before arriving in Red Deer for the Opening Ceremony of the 2019 Games.
