Established by Prince Harry in 2014, the Invictus Games are the only international adaptive sporting event for ill, wounded and injured active duty and Veteran service members.
The Invictus Games Toronto 2017 will be the third and largest Games yet. For the 550 competitors invited from 17 participating nations, and competing in 12 sports, the Invictus Games Toronto 2017 affords the opportunity to continue on a path of rehabilitation and recovery.
Since its inception in 2014, the Invictus Games has shone an international light on the unconquerable spirit of wounded, ill and injured servicemen, servicewomen and Veterans.
The Games will present a unique opportunity for Canadians to honour the men, women and families who have come face-to-face with the reality of sacrificing for their country, and will provide our active and Veteran service members with an opportunity to showcase their unconquerable spirit on an international platform.
The Invictus Games will help commemorate an important year for Canada as our nation celebrates Canada 150. The Games will also help commemorate significant Canadian military milestones that have shaped and defined our nation, including the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy and 75th anniversary of the Battle of Dieppe.
