The Canadian Transplant Games


About The Canadian Transplant Games

Since 2000, the Canadian Transplant Games have been a showcase for transplant recipients from across the country to enjoy the competition and camaraderie while celebrating a second chance at life. These national games are Canada’s largest organ & tissue donation awareness event and purpose of the Games is to:

  • Increase organ & tissue donation in Canada and beyond
  • Demonstrate the active healthy lifestyle that may be achieved following transplantation
  • Promote the success of organ & tissue donation and transplantation
  • Offer hope to the thousands of Canadians on transplant wait lists
  • Provide an opportunity to thank donors and donor families for their precious gift of life
  • Raise awareness and educate, and encourage the public to consider organ donation
  • Create a Games environment that is built on the contributions, skills and collaboration of community volunteers, corporate sponsors and all levels of government
  • Leave a legacy of volunteerism, community spirit and organizational development that will have a lasting value to all involved

The Canadian Transplant Games, held every two years, is a family oriented event. In addition to the competition for recipients there are activities designed for family members and other supporters. The games are usually 5 days in length, and include Opening Ceremonies and many special events throughout the week, a donor/donor family recognition, and Closing Ceremonies followed by a gala dinner and dance.
