Thank you for celebrating the Canada Games Flag Relay with us!

We had so much fun at the Canada Games 50th Anniversary Flag Relay with Mayor Mike Savage, Brian Lane, Hannah Vaughan, our members, staff and community.

Photos are now posted. Visit our Canada Games Flag Relay photo album on our Facebook page to see the excitement as we raised the Canada Games flag and the Global News Morning feature (watch from 06:30-07:02). 

As part of a Canada 150 Signature project, a unique 50th anniversary Canada Games flag is travelling across Canada celebrating each of the past Host Communities. Its ultimate destination will be the Opening Ceremony of the 2017 Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg on July 28th. This particular flag stop is to celebrate the legacy of the 1969 and 2011 Canada Games hosted in Halifax.

The Halifax celebration will feature the flag raising and Canada Games Exhibit with artifacts from past Games including medals, pins, patches, scarves and more. We’re excited to have Mayor Mike Savage and RBC Olympian and Canada Games alumnus Hannah Vaughan onsite to speak before the flag raising. Former Councillor Gloria McCluskey will also be in attendance – with a unique connection to Hannah and the Games.

Members, guests, staff and local community are invited to join us at the CGC on:
Thursday, February 23rd
4pm to 4:30pm*

This CGC was built as the legacy of the 2011 Winter Canada Games. It is now a vibrant multi-sport community and recreation centre open to the public. We are very proud to be a stop on the Flag Relay in celebration of 50 years of high performance sport in Canada.
