A Decade Later

Ten years ago, the Vancouver 2010 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games united the nation, forever changing the sport landscape in Canada. The Games were a once-in-a-lifetime experience for athletes, officials, and Canadian communities from coast to coast. Canadians welcomed the world with glowing hearts and filled venues and streets with red and white to celebrate the Olympic and Paralympic spirit.

The legacy of Vancouver 2010 is evident by both the impact of the Games and in the increased funding and support that sport has seen over the past decade. Team Canada has seen record-breaking performances over the past decade, thanks in large part to the momentum generated by Vancouver 2010. On February 22, 2020 we will celebrate the 10-Year Anniversary of the Games and their lasting legacy.

The Vancouver 2010 Celebration Gala will raise an anticipated $1,000,000 for the next generation of Team Canada athletes as they continue on their path to the podium. We’ll honor the past and look to the future of sport in Canada.

Cocktail Reception: 5:30 PM
Dinner: 7:15 PM
Post-Event Reception: 10:30 PM – 12:00 AM
Dress Code: Black Tie Optional

Supporting the Next Generation

All funds raised from this celebration will go to the Canadian Olympic Foundation to support our next generation of Canadian athletes as they continue on their path to the podium, and sport including national sport federations, the Paralympic Foundation of Canada and other sport organizations. The Canadian Olympic Foundation has enabled Canadians, Canadian athletes and their coaches to strive for excellence in sport since 2007. As the official charitable organization of the Canadian Olympic Committee and Team Canada, we aim to inspire every Canadian to be capable of greatness, through sport and Olympic values.

The Canadian Olympic Foundation empowers Canadians to be an integral part of the Canadian Olympic Movement by directly supporting our current and next generation athletes and coaches with the critical funds they need to pursue the podium. We support our athletes at all levels to ensure they receive the high performance resources including coaching, training, specialized sport medicine and access to competitions they require to reach their dreams and goals of wearing the maple leaf on their chest, representing Canada at the Olympic Games.
