GET IN THE GAME
In less than 14 months, nearly 2000 of Western Canada’s best and brightest will set their sights on Swift Current as we host the 2019 Western Canada Summer Games (WCSG). Thousands of visitors including officials, VIPs, media and spectators will join us for the 10-day event. Featuring 16 sports and a major arts and cultural festival, the 2019 Games will be the largest event in Swift Current’s history.
In order to host an event of this magnitude, we need enthusiastic, dedicated leaders to assist with the planning and execution of the 2019 WCSG. We are looking for skilled and experienced individuals to take on leadership and planning roles, starting now through Games time.
