On April, 2009, the City of Nanaimo was announced as the host city for the 2014 BC Summer Games by the Honourable Ron Cantelon, MLA for Nanaimo-Parksville.
Nanaimo hosted the BC Summer Games in 2002 and in 1985 before that. They have also staged the BC Disability Games and the BC Seniors Games.
"Nanaimo has a proud history of successfully hosting a variety of both sporting and cultural events and among them, the BC Games is always a highlight,” said Mayor John Ruttan. “We look forward to once again hosting BC's amateur athletes in Nanaimo during the 2014 BC Summer Games."
Host Communities of the BC Summer Games will realize a direct economic benefit of over $2 million while also building volunteer and community capacity and promoting sport and healthy living.
