“I love how there’s such a strong sense of community here. There really aren’t many places where athletes, non-athletes, teens, parents and their children can all have access to their choice of fitness, sport, and wellness activities under the same roof. And how cool is it that it’s in our own neighbourhood?”

— Karen, Customer Service

Our Legacy

The Canada Games Centre (CGC) was built as the legacy of the 2011 Canada Winter Games in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In February of 2011, the Centre hosted the badminton, synchronized swimming and artistic gymnastics events.

The CGC is now a vibrant multi-sport community and recreation centre open to the public. We are an HRM-owned facility operated by a non-profit society committed to promoting physical literacy, fitness and wellness, and to supporting the needs of high performance sport & athlete development. The Centre runs sport and recreation programs, camps, fitness classes and so much more in an inclusive environment.
