Special Olympics Canada 2020 – Winter Games – Family and Friends Program

Thunder Bay will be welcoming 1200 Special Olympics athletes, coaches and support staff along with 600 friends and family members from February 24 to 29, 2020 for a week of competition and special events.

Leadership Thunder Bay will showcase what Thunder Bay has to offer in the way of tourism and hospitality.  Creativity is at the root of this project and will require the CAP team members to reach out into the community and explore the many talents and resources that are available and honing fiscal responsibility by ensuring the project is delivered on budget.

The Community Action Project goal is to develop a robust Family and Friends Program to welcome visitors to our community including:

  • Welcome visitors at airport and hotels
  • Engagement & entertainment at the 8 sport venues
  • Host a friends and family dinner
  • Other activities that showcase Thunder Bay and enhance the games experience for the visiting family and friends
