All Community Games


All Community Games

Established in 2005, All Community Games' (formerly Asian Community Games) mission is to unite all communities through several days of friendly athletic competition.  The goal is to facilitate a better understanding through interaction with each other.

Since the inception, we have been deeply encouraged by the responses and input of many communities. The Asian Community Games was opened to all Canadians of different age groups and ethnic communities. In 2017, to reflect the participation from all ethnic communities, the Asian Community Games was officially renamed to All Community Games.
