Team Kanada – World Polonia Games

About Us

The World Polonia Games (Swiatowe Igrzyska Polonijne) is a sporting event held annually in various Polish cities for members of Polonia, alternating between the summer and winter games. The first Games were held in 1934.

The goal of this event is to integrate Polish people to strengthen their contact with Poland and to meet with other members of Polonia. The Polonia Games are divided into winter and summer events with up to 1,500 participants representing 25 – 30 countries from around the world, with Canada often placing within the Top Five. There are many sports to choose from during both sets of Games, and participants are not limited to one sport.

Team Kanada is looking for willing athletes to participate in the summer and winter games, especially Canadians with a Polish background. You do not need to speak Polish to join the team, and all ages and abilities are welcome!
