FREDERICTON (GNB) – Team New Brunswick has announced the final rosters of the 23 teams that will represent the province at the 2022 Canada Summer Games taking place Aug. 6 to 21 in Niagara, Ont.

“Our teams are ready to compete against the nation’s best athletes at the 2022 Canada Summer Games,” said Tourism, Heritage and Culture Minister Tammy Scott-Wallace. “New Brunswickers should be proud of these teams which are composed of talented athletes and para-athletes.”

New Brunswick will be represented by 346 athletes, 80 coaches, managers and technical staff and 20 mission team members. The group recently held its rally and salute to provide final briefings to the teams and to unveil the ceremonial uniform.

“I encourage all New Brunswickers from every corner of our province to proudly cheer on our team members who will definitely enjoy their Canada Games experience,” said Team New Brunswick chef de mission Nicole Smith, who is leading the team for the third consecutive Canada Games.

The 2022 Canada Summer Games were initially scheduled to take place in August 2021 but were postponed due to the pandemic. The Games, which usually alternate every two years between summer and winter games, are one of the largest multi-sport events held in the country. They feature 18 sports over a 16-day period involving more than 5,000 athletes, coaches and managers.
