History

In 1972 the Provincial Government approved the initiation of a Provincial Games Development Program, which would give rural Manitoba an equal opportunity to participate in amateur sport.

The first province-wide Manitoba Games was held in Winnipeg in late December as part of the city’s 1974 Centennial Celebration. These Games were used to identify and select Manitoba’s 1975 Canada Winter Games teams. Neepawa was chosen to host the 1976 Manitoba Summer Games and the 1978 Manitoba Winter Games were held in Dauphin. After a hiatus, the Manitoba Games program was reinstituted in 1986 and has been held every two years since.
