Team BC - 2017 Canada Summer Games

Team BC

Team BC is sending a contingent of 455 athletes, coaches, managers, and mission staff to represent British Columbia at the 2017 Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg.

BC Games alumni feature prominently and represent 57% of the team. 216 athletes have previously competed at a BC Winter or BC Summer Games with an additional 25 coaches, 12 managers, and 6 mission staff members who are also alumni. Alumni bring with them the valuable experience of previously competing at multi-sport Games.

BC Games alumni will be presented with a special recognition card and pin at the 2017 Canada Summer Games to symbolize their significant achievement.


viaSport and You Can Play


viaSport is leading the B.C. sport sector to create a culture of awareness and inclusivity, and You Can Play is an organization dedicated to ensuring equality, respect and safety for all athletes, coaches, volunteers, and spectators, regardless of sexual orientation and/or gender identity or expression. This partnership is the first of its kind in Canada, and B.C. is the first province to partner with the You Can Play Project.

“viaSport is honored to partner with You Can Play and is committed to ensuring that all British Columbians are given a fair and equitable opportunity to participate and thrive through sport,” said Sheila Bouman, Chief Executive Officer of viaSport. “Canadians value the right for gender self-determination and we need to ensure that our sport sector in B.C. reflects those same values. No matter your gender identity, sexual orientation, or gender expression, we want sport to be inclusive for everyone in our province.”
