Team Alberta 

The Canada Games are an interprovincial and territorial sports festival staged every two years, alternating between Summer and Winter Games.

Since the Canada Games were introduced in 1967, more than 100,000 participants in over 40 sports have been involved as athletes, coaches or officials, and over 75,000 volunteers have dedicated their time to staging the event.

Team Alberta was impressive at the 2015 Canada Winter Games in Prince George, earning 75 medals, finishing fourth overall.  Team Alberta captured 14 gold, 25 silver and 36 bronze medals at the Games and many of our athletes achieved personal bests.
