Canada Games: eyes of the nation are on Manitoba this summer!
Published by CME Manitoba on June 19, 2017
Company’s coming for the 2017 Canada Summer Games! With 20,000 visitors and 4,000 athletes coming for the Games, the ‘Eyes of the Nation” will be on Manitoba.
We want to showcase all that our city and province have to offer, from our attractions, culture and diversity to our Friendly Manitoba smiles.
Ways to pitch in
The Canada Games organizing committee is asking you to help get our host cities company-ready. Here are a few ideas:
• Organize a clean-up party in your neighbourhood with family and friends
• Plant flowers in Canada Games colours: red, yellow, and orange
• If you have a business, dress it up with a Canada Games decor package (available on the Canada Games website)
• Use your signage to welcome athletes and visitors
While our visitors will benefit from our efforts, Eyes of the Nation will also inspire a sense of pride in our residents as well. You’ll find all the details on the Games’ website: www.canadagames.ca/2017.
Don’t forget to post a few pictures using the handle @2017canadagames and hashtag #JCGNation. You could win a promotional travel credit on VIA Rail, with departure from Winnipeg!
Cheer on the athletes, send a message to Canada!
The 2017 Canada Summer Games represent a unique opportunity to showcase Winnipeg in its brightest light and have everyone talking about our city, province, and region. With a national television audience watching 40 hours of live coverage on TSN and RDS (Réseau des sports), Games organizers are challenging the community to help create an exciting atmosphere in the stands for the hundreds of thousands of viewers from across the country.
“Filling the stands is not only a show of support for Canada’s next generation of champions, it shows Canada what a vibrant community we have here in Winnipeg, Gimli and Kenora,” remarked Host Society co-chair, Hubert Mesman.
Together, let’s make this the Hottest Summer in Half a Century! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!!
