Invictus Games

The word ‘invictus’ means ‘unconquered’. It embodies the fighting spirit of wounded, injured and sick Service personnel and personifies what these tenacious men and women can achieve post-injury. The Games harness the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for those who serve their country. These goals align with the continued efforts of the Canadian Armed Forces Soldier On program to support serving members and veterans recover through sport, recreation, and creative activities.

This year, after two years of delay, Team Canada will compete in the 2020 Invictus Games, taking place on April 16-22, 2022, in The Hague, Netherlands. Team Canada will be sending 28 athletes plus a honorary member at the Invictus Games The Hague, who will be competing alongside approximately 500 competitors representing Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, France, Georgia, Germany, Iraq, Italy, Jordan, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Republic of Korea, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and the United States.

Participants from Team Canada will take part in all 10 sports featured at the Invictus Games The Hague: archery, athletics, cycling, indoor rowing, powerlifting, sitting volleyball, swimming, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby, and the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge.

Team Canada members were selected to participate in the Invictus Games from all across Canada, honouring the spirit of the Invictus Games – Unconquered!  Medals of any colour do not represent the spirit of the Invictus Games, but rather the goal of the games is to provide an inspirational experience that the ill and injured participants and those following the games can use to fuel their recoveries for the rest of their lives.
