Bid applications are invited from communities interested in hosting upcoming Newfoundland and Labrador Games (NL Games) – 2018 (Winter), 2020 (Summer), 2022 (Winter) or 2024 (Summer).

“Sport creates connections, builds volunteer capacity and provides opportunities for community members to come together, while also yielding economic benefits through the hosting of events. For 40 years, the Newfoundland and Labrador Games program has been encouraging participation in sport and the pursuit of excellence. I encourage towns and communities to submit bid applications for the upcoming games in our province.”
– The Honourable Sherry Gambin-Walsh, Minister of Children, Seniors and Social Development

The successful applicants will be eligible for an operating grant of $200,000 from the Department of Children, Seniors and Social Development.
