February 23 to March 10, 2021 ribbon Canada Winter Games 2007
The 2007 Canada Winter Games Torch Relay
2006, April 18th:
The 2007 Canada Winter Games Torch Relay



In keeping with the Pan Northern perspective of the 2007 Canada Winter Games, the Torch Relay is an epic pan northern journey that spans all three Canadian Territories. The magnitude of this journey is as immense as the landscape it will traverse. From April 2006 to February 2007, three northern torches bring the spirit of the Games to every region of Canada’s territories, culminating in the Games Opening Ceremonies on February 24, 2007.
The Torch Relay covers over 100,000 km, visits 86 communities, highlights two unique places in each territory with a special Torch Challenge, and involves all forms of northern transportation. It is made possible through partnerships with the Canadian Forces, Parks Canada, the R.C.M.P. and the Pan North Partners, the governments of Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
Through the Torch Relay, Canadians from coast to coast to coast will have the opportunity to learn about the Games and also about our amazing North, its awe-inspiring landscapes, unique diverse cultures, rich history and great potential. Citizens throughout the North have the opportunity to be a part of the Games, to join in the excitement and to share the Games spirit.
