Hosting the Games in Canada in 2017, the year the country celebrates the 150th anniversary of its Confederation, will provide a unique opportunity for Canadians to commemorate and honour its ill, wounded and injured soldiers, and their families.
Most of us will never know the horrors of combat. Many servicemen and women suffer life-changing injuries, both visible and invisible, while serving their countries. How do they find the motivation to move on and to not be defined by their injuries? How can they be recognized for their achievements?
Founded in August 2015, the Invictus Games Toronto 2017 Organizing Committee is tasked with bringing the Invictus Games to Toronto, Ontario, in 2017. After the UK Invictus Games Foundation awarded the Games to Canada, the Invictus Games Toronto 2017 Organizing Committee was established to build on the success of the London 2014 and Orlando 2016 Invictus Games to put on an event that will capture the imaginations of the Canadian public, corporations and governments, as well as soldiers, veterans and their families.
The Invictus Games Toronto 2017 could not happen without the support of our dedicated sponsors. In addition to their financial contribution, each of their products, services and areas of expertise are vital to the success of the Games.
The Invictus Games Foundation was established in London, England, in 2014 to pursue and develop the legacy of the Invictus Games, Prince Harry’s adaptive sport event for injured, ill and wounded servicemen and women and veterans.
The Invictus Games Toronto 2017 mark the beginning of a legacy program to support the growth of adaptive sport programs in Canada and to further personal and professional opportunities for servicemen and women transitioning from the Canadian Armed Forces.
