The Ontario Winter Games is the province’s largest multi-sport event. The Thunder Bay 2024 Ontario Winter Games will be taking place in two waves over two weekends; February 16 – 19 and 23 – 26. In addition to providing the opportunity for community members to watch and be involved in supporting future National team and Olympic/Paralympic athletes, the Games also allow us to showcase Thunder Bay’s amenities and incomparable winter landscape. Drawing up to 3,500 athletes, coaches, officials and dignitaries, the eight-day competition is estimated to contribute $6 million dollars in economic impact.
