Les Jeux d'hiver de 2023 du comté de Renfrew existent grâce au programme des Jeux de l’Ontario soutenu par le gouvernement ontarien. Ce programme offre et appuie des événements multisports, y compris les Jeux d'hiver et d'été de l'Ontario pour les jeunes, les Jeux d'hiver et d'été de l'Ontario des 55 ans et plus et les Jeux Parasport de l'Ontario.

Le plus important événement multisports de la province, les Jeux d’hiver de l’Ontario mettent en lumière le sport amateur en Ontario. Ils offrent aux jeunes athlètes les plus talentueux des possibilités de perfectionnement et des occasions de compétition contribuant à leur préparation aux compétitions nationales et internationales. Les Jeux d'hiver de l'Ontario ont été organisés pour la première fois en 1970 par la ville d'Etobicoke. Depuis lors, ils ont lieu les années paires et attirent jusqu'à 3 000 participants à plus de vingt disciplines sportives.

LE COMTÉ DE RENFREW ET LES JEUX DE L’ONTARIO

Les Jeux prévoient attirer participants et spectateurs de partout en Ontario et d'ailleurs. Quelle excellente occasion de promouvoir nos communautés, d’exploiter notre tourisme et de mettre en valeur nos attractions!

C’est en fait grâce à notre riche historique sportive comme participant et comme organisateur d’événements que le comté de Renfrew a été retenu comme hôte des Jeux.
