Team BC 2023 NAIG

The 2023 North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia within the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq.

The Team BC NAIG program provides 520 Indigenous athletes, coaches, and mission staff from across BC with an incredible opportunity to experience a major international sport competition and to share and celebrate their cultural heritages with other youth from across the continent. Team BC’s performance at both the Regina 2014 NAIG and Toronto 2017 NAIG resulted in winning the Overall Team Award!

The Indigenous Sport, Physical Activity & Recreation Council delivers an annual series of BC Indigenous Provincial Championships and Athlete Development Camps in various communities across the province. These events were strategically established to support athlete and coaching development in communities across the province and provide an ideal opportunity to conduct talent identification for Team BC.

The 2022/23 season of BC Indigenous Provincial Championships and Athlete Development Camps will serve as a primary component of the talent identification by which athletes and coaches will be selected to represent BC at the Halifax 2023 NAIG.
