The 2013 Canada Summer Games was a national multi-sport event that was held in Sherbrooke, Quebec from August 2, 2013 to August 17, 2013. Bishop's University was the venue for two sports: basketball and soccer. These Games were the first Canada Summer Games to be held in Quebec, and third overall after the inaugural Canada Winter Games in Quebec City in 1967 and the 1983 Canada Winter Games in Saguenay. Sherbrooke hosted the 2013 Canada Summer Games from August 2nd to the 17th. It made its mark with many innovations and successes, including the event’s recognition as sustainable, fair-trade, and carbon care Games, the establishment of an Office of the Ombudsman for volunteers, and free admission to Closing Ceremonies for everyone. 6329 volunteers, 14 897 participants including 3400 athletes and 150 sponsors contributed to the success of the Canada Summer Games–Sherbrooke 2013. Team Ontario proved once again to be a tremendous competitor, winning the Canada Games Flag. Nova Scotia took home the Jack Pelech, B.C won the Claude Hardy and Manitoba awarded Centennial Cup.
