This summer, the University of Manitoba will host the 2017 Canada Summer Games. As you may be aware, the Fort Garry campus is one of the main locations for games; from July 28 to August 13, the campus will serve as the Athletes’ Village, the main venue for volleyball and track and field, and the location of the closing ceremonies.

We’re delighted that thousands of enthusiastic young athletes will have a chance to explore our campus and compete in some of our amazing facilities.

At the same time, playing hosts to Canada’s best young athletes will impact a portion of our campus community.
