Torch Relay

Niagara's communities sharing the excitement of the Games, one runner at at time.

Running of the Torch

Canada Games Torch Relay

The Canada Games Torch Relay is steeped in the tradition of the Canada Games which the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games will honour. Starting with the lighting of the Roly McLenahan Torch in Ottawa at the Centennial Flame on Parliament Hill, the torch will travel to the Niagara Region, culminating with the lighting of the Canada Games Cauldron at the Opening Ceremony, which is scheduled for Saturday, August 6, 2022 at the Meridian Centre in St. Catharines.

Along the route, communities will share the excitement of the Games and celebrate Canadian athletes. Our goal is to use both contemporary and historical transportation paths that might include waterways such as the Welland Canal. The final twelve stops will be within the Niagara Region with celebrations in each of our local municipalities.

Torchbearer application forms will be available on this website with details of the route.
