About The Games

When the ASC Seniors Games were first conceived and announced in 2009, our mission was to celebrate and foster a joyous spirit of community and active living during a time of the year that is traditionally very isolating and lonely for many seniors.

The goal of the ASC Seniors Games has been to grow in breadth and scope to become a much anticipated week-long, annual event across the country, with training and preparations ongoing throughout the year.

The Seniors Games are also defined by:

  • Friendly competition
  • New friendships
  • Sense of Community
  • Striving for and Achieving Personal Bests
  • Wonderful memories through Laughter and Camaraderie
  • Participating Special Guests, Dignitaries and Family Members
  • The variety of Chef prepared meals daily
  • Fostering the Independence of our Residents

The Games have become such a well-loved community tradition that they have been covered by major TV networks, such as; CTV, Global TV, CityTV and CBC TV, as well as radio stations in all markets too numerous to mention all Post Media local newspapers, the Winnipeg Free Press and community publications in all markets. With the growth in number of followers our online presence and updates have become more extensive and far reaching, allowing us to create an ongoing archive of the rich history and stories from past Games.

Games Organizing Volunteers (GOV’s)

In keeping with our mission of fostering independence in our residents, our GOV’s are dedicated to making the All Seniors Care Seniors Games a wonderful experience for all participants at each of our retirement communities across the country. Led by a Chef de Mission, supported by Assistant Chefs du Mission and residence Health and Wellness staff our GOV’s serve to create an environment that allows each athlete to focus on enjoying the competition and achieving personal best performances. Assistant Chefs, are responsible for coordinating the specific competitions and work closely with the ASC Health and Wellness teams make sure events run smoothly, fairly and are enjoyable for all participants.

Opening Ceremony

As with most major national and international multi-sport competitions we celebrate each year’s theme and officially launch the games through formal opening ceremonies on the first day of the games. Special guest appearances, a celebratory walk and roll, Chef Du Mission welcomes and formal readings of letters of support and encouragement from the Governor General and the Prime Minister make up an afternoon of special memories for all in attendance. The day winds down with entertainment, community engagement and a special meal service prepared by our Red Seal chefs. Because the All Seniors Care Seniors Games are celebrated simultaneously across Canada the sense of community and warmth are truly wonderful to experience.

Thrill of the Games

Over the four days of the Games competition residents square off against one another in indoor bocce, billiards and archery, shuffleboard as well as bowling and golf on the Nintendo Wii with Cards and Board games rounding out the week. Without a doubt, the competition gets intense, but a jovial, sportsmanlike attitude tends to prevail with teammates and opponents alike hugging and bonding over the joy of sport. With each passing day, the results are tallied, recorded and posted online with national medals awarded in Bocce, Wii Gold and Wii Bowling. This detailed, personal approach is indicative of our company’s culture, from the executive team through to each individual staff member, and so it gives us great pleasure to see our residents thriving and expressing themselves joyfully in the comfort of our retirement communities — a place they can happily and proudly call home.
