The BC Games Society, with the support of the Province of BC and the City of Maple Ridge, has made the difficult decision to cancel the Maple Ridge 2020 BC Summer Games.
Cancelling the Games was determined to be the most responsible precautionary measure to address concerns around the spread of COVID-19 and is supported by the Maple Ridge 2020 BC Summer Games Host Society. With up to 3,700 athletes, coaches, and officials anticipated to arrive in Maple Ridge for the BC Summer Games, necessary steps had to be taken to ensure the health and safety of the community and participants.
During this rapidly changing situation with COVID-19, the BC Games Society will continue to update you on plans going forward. We value our participants, host communities, and sport partners, and appreciate your patience as we do our part to support all of the unprecedented steps taking place to slow the spread of COVID-19.
We remain exceptionally grateful for your support and want to recognize how vital your work is to the success of the Games.
