The BC Games Society is a provincial crown corporation in British Columbia created in 1977. The organization is the governing body responsible for the BC Summer Games and BC Winter Games, and manages the Team BC program at the Canada Games.


While competition is the backbone of the Games, at its heart are the spirit of competition, camaraderie and friendship, teamwork, and the setting of goals for individual and community excellence.

A team of volunteers in the Games host community ensure that everything runs smoothly - from the Torchlighting Ceremony approximately 100 days before the Games, to medal presentation ceremonies, to the sport competitions and the Closing Ceremony.

Everyone goes home a winner with a personal legacy that only participation in the BC Games can provide.
