ABOUT THE CANADA WINTER GAMES
MENS - Held every four years, the Canada Winter Games are a showcase of the best under-16 players in the country, representing their home province. Men’s hockey debuted at the inaugural Canada Games in 1967, with the University of Alberta Golden Bears beating the UBC Thunderbirds to win the first gold medal. The tournament replaced the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge every four years through the 1990s and 2000s, before it became a U16 event beginning with the 2011 Games.
WOMENS - Replacing the National Women's Under-18 Championship every four years, the Canada Winter Games highlights the future of the women's game in a province vs. province showdown for a gold medal. Women’s hockey was added to the schedule beginning with the 1991 Games in Charlottetown, P.E.I., when Hayley Wickenheiser scored the gold-medal-winning goal for Alberta as a 12-year-old, giving a glimpse of what was to come during a record-setting career with Canada’s National Women’s Team.
