While summer slips away, there's a large group of people in Winnipeg that are already looking ahead to the summer of 2017. And they'd love for you to join them.

Winnipeg will play host to the 2017 Canada Summer Games, July 28 - Aug 13, 2017. The city will see over 4,000 athletes and coaches from the Atlantic, to the Pacific, and up to the Arctic descend upon our city. Never mind the huge number of fans & spectators that will be joining them. 

Laryssa Sawchuk, the Volunteer Services Lead for the games, joined us and explained what the games are, and what the hosting committee is in search of.

They hope to have 6,000 volunteers by January of 2017. Sawchuk explained the requirments that are necessary for volunteers.
