  • First-Ever National MNP Canada Games Torch Relay Kicks Off

    Thursday, 4th October 2018

    (Ottawa, Ontario) – Today, the first-ever national MNP Canada Games Torch Relay kicked off on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario, and the Canada Games flag was raised across the country in past Host Communities. As part of Canada Games tradition, the Canada Games Roly McLenahan Torch was lit from the Centennial Flame with guest of honour Minister of Sport, Kirsty Duncan. The Canada Games Torch Lighting is a significant element of the Games and has united communities across the nation for the past 51 years. In celebration of the lighting of the torch, past Canada Games Host Communities raised the Canada Games flag. For the first time in the history of the Canada Games, the Roly McLenahan torch now embarks on a relay across Canada before arriving in Red Deer, Alberta for the Opening Ceremony of the 2019 Canada Winter Games on February 15, 2019.

    “The MNP Canada Games Torch Relay is an exciting opportunity to share the spirit of the Canada Games across the nation,” said Lyn Radford, Board Chair of the 2019 Canada Winter Games Host Society. “We are proud to partner with MNP to deliver the first-ever national MNP Canada Games Torch Relay and celebrate sport and culture in communities across the nation from now until the Opening Ceremony of the 2019 Canada Winter Games in Red Deer.”

    “This inaugural MNP Canada Games Torch Relay will give Canadians across the country the opportunity to experience the true spirit of the 2019 Canada Winter Games,” said the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Sport. “The flame will pass through communities in every region of the country providing Canadians an opportunity to cheer on our athletes as they strive for excellence but also to be inspired by their love of sport.”

    “Alberta is proud to host the 2019 Canada Winter Games in Red Deer,” said Ricardo Miranda, Alberta Minister of Culture and Tourism. “We will be eagerly watching the torch as it makes its way across the country before arriving in the heart of Alberta. Good luck to all the torchbearers and we look forward to welcoming you to Alberta soon.”

    “As the torch starts its journey on the road to Red Deer, it provides a unique opportunity for our fellow Canadians to become a part of the 2019 Canada Winter Games in their respective communities,” said City of Red Deer Mayor Tara Veer. “Through the torch, Canadians from coast to coast to coast across our country will become a part of the energy and excitement that Red Deer will experience this February when we welcome the nation to our city”.

    “We are thrilled that the MNP Canada Games Torch Relay is now underway and that the iconic Roly McLenahan Torch is set to travel across our beautiful country, galvanizing Canadian pride for youth and sport,” said Tom Quinn, Canada Games Council Chairman. “The Torch visits communities that have hosted past editions of the Canada Games and a feeling of nostalgia and effervescence is sure to take over as residents reminisce about how impactful the Canada Games were to their city and community.”

    “For MNP, the opportunity to participate in the coast-to-coast Torch Relay is a real honour and a wonderful way for us, as a ‘Made in Canada’ firm, to celebrate our 60th anniversary,” said Jason Tuffs, Chief Executive Officer of MNP. “We wish all the athletes, their families, Games organizers, leadership and volunteers a fun and successful 2019 Canada Winter Games.”

    The first torch relay stop is Halifax, Nova Scotia on October 9 and then the MNP Canada Games Torch Relay heads west visiting almost 50 communities across Canada through a series of torch relay and community celebration stops before arriving in Red Deer for the Opening Ceremony of the 2019 Games.

    Torch relays are hosted in 26 communities, information on torchbearers is available at canadagames.ca/2019/torchbearers.
