A two-week Sport & Recreation event with a focus on participatio, sportsmanship, team building and fun
The Games were created in 1992 to provide an activity for a handful of local businesses to foster employee interaction, teamwork, morale, pride, and health & wellness. The response proved overwhelming and today the Games have grown to include over 170 companies and over 18,000 athletes in an Olympics-style competition that is one of the largest amateur sporting events in Canada!
The Games take place over 16 days every spring. Venues throughout the city host 22 sporting events as diverse as Orienteering and Eight Ball, Trivia and Golf. There is an event for every level of fitness and desire.
Teams who have competed the previous year are given the first right of refusal to sign up. The application process begins in Sept/Oct when the renewal packages are sent out. Companies have until the beginning of November to confirm their participation. New companies wishing to join Corporate Challenge are put on a waiting list until it is determined how many empty places are available. Corporate Challenge is currently limited to 160 companies in the regular 5 divisions.
By December all teams are contacted and told of their status for the coming year. If you want to sign up, just click on New Company Application on the front page of our website!
Please note that all companies who sponsor the Games are allowed to enter a team thus bypassing the waiting list. If you are interested in receiving sponsorship information, please call the office at 780-463-9500.
