Celebrating 10 Great Years

On March 5th, 2011, the Canada Games Centre opened its doors to the community after hosting events for the 2011 Winter Canada Games in Halifax. Ten years later, we’re just as excited to be engaged in healthy active living, community, and sport as we were on day one! Although we’re unable to celebrate our 10th birthday with an event this year, we’re enjoying a look back at some great memories and the wonderful community that helped make the CGC the vibrant and inspiring place it is today.

Thank you to all our stakeholders, members, partners, visitors and staff—for being part of the CGC community. It wouldn’t be the same without you, your inspiration and your dedication.

Thank you to our past volunteer Board Chairs, for their time and commitment to healthy active living:

  • Bill Stanish | 2011-2014
  • Colin Piercey | 2014-2016
  • Brian Lane | 2016-2018
  • Yemi Akindoju | 2018-2020

We’d also like to highlight and recognize our staff celebrating 10 years with the CGC:

  • Carla Alderson | Manager, Service Operations
  • John Doyle | Building Operator
  • Gary Furlong | General Manager
