The Ontario Games are a program provided by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport. The Ontario Games began in 1970 as a showcase for amateur sport. As the Province’s largest multi-sport event, the Ontario Games provide athletes of the Province with a developmental and competitive opportunity to prepare for national and international competition. The Games also give the public a chance to see some of Ontario’s best amateur athletes compete in the only multi-sport event of this calibre hosted in the Province.
