Update - December 2, 2019
Merit Travel has finalized the deals with Air Canada and West Jet and the details of these will be in your registration form with details on how to contact Merit for bookings and how to request the special rates. Basically, there will be discount ranging from 5% to 15% off plus free seat selection and a checked bag. Again details will be in the Registration Form available in December/January.
Kamloops has selected a graphic designer who is busy working on medals and pins.
Hotel listings will be sent to all directors (me for us) with the Registration Form, showing the booking codes. The hotels will not be listed on the Games website is the latest plan.
Summer is busy in Kamloops, so booking air flights and hotels as soon as possible will be important.
Accreditation/Kamloops check-in will begin on Monday, August 24th and some sports/events will have practice time available on the 24th. The last day, Friday, August 28th will see the completion of all competitions in the afternoon and the Closing Ceremonies will be the evening of the 28th. The hope is that most people will stay on the 28th, take in the closing, and depart the next day, Saturday, August 29th.
Hotels are offering Games rates August 24th to August 29th. Also there will be bus transportation August 24th to 29th between airport and hotels, hotels and event venues, and for departure from hotels to airport.
Hope this helps. There will be more information as it becomes available!
Really looking forward to these Canada Games in Kamloops, BC where they advertise themselves to be the TOURNAMENT CAPITAL OF CANADA.

First, please take a moment to visit the Canada Games website at canada55plus.ca and click on rules. Review these please as what happens in the OSGA may be slightly different than what happens at the Canada Games. We will be going by the Canada Games rules in Kamloops.
Please take some time to regularly visit the Kamloops Canada Games website at kamloops55games.com as it will have important information added for you re: schedules, accommodations, events, merchandise and these will be posted there as they become available.
Our Ontario team shirts will be red as that is our assigned colour. The shirts will be collared, golf style with moisture management, easy care, snag resistant, UV protection UPF 40+, and have wicking finish. There is a sizing chart and 2 pictures below for you to see. The cost will be $30 all in. Most shirts will be sent to your District organizers as most have been kind enough to help out with this delivery. So once they are sent out, you make arrangements for pick up of your shirt with your district organizers. Shirt orders will be taken on the formal registration form in December/January.
Formal Registration Forms will be available in December/January so please stay tuned to this web page, or your emails!
