The Toronto 2017 North American Games (Toronto 2017 NAIG) Host Society, in partnership with the Aboriginal Sport and Wellness Council of Ontario (ASWCO), embarked on a twelve-stop Community Tour, engaging hundreds of youth in Indigenous communities across Ontario.
Beginning on February 10, and concluding on July 1, the tour made stops in Fort Albany, Pikangukum, Wikwemikong, Rama, Kenora, Six Nations of the Grand River, Mississaugas of the New Credit, Oshawa, and Toronto to name a few, bringing the unifying spirit of the North American Indigenous Games to communities from the northern tip to the southern shores.
The final ‘unofficial’ stop of the tour concluded July 14 at the Harbourfront Centre in downtown Toronto, ON. The event was a kick-off to the eight day international sport and cultural event and week of celebrations.
