One of the goals of the Jeux Canada Games is to leave a heritage of physical and human resources in both the host community and the province.

The 1989 Jeux Canada Games left Saskatoon and Saskatchewan with legacies in facilities, community development and sport. Sport equipment from the Games was distributed to communities and organizations throughout the province for use by amateur athletes.

The 1989 Jeux Canada Games Foundation was established with funds remaining after completion of the Games. The Foundation distributes the interest accrued on the invested funds on an annual basis to assist in the development of amateur sport in Saskatchewan.


Application Deadline: November 30 each year

Success Stories

Wind On My Wings Sailing Club in Regina used a contribution from the Foundation (along with other sponsors) to build a 50 foot floating dock to allow people with disabilities interested in sailing to be able to access the sailboats and sail on Wascana Lake in Regina.


"The 1989 Jeux Canada Games Foundation grant program has been a wonderful program for us. We have upgraded our competition capabilities several times thanks to the grants we have received. This has allowed us to bid on and host many successful National fencing events (Western Championships, Junior National Championships, Senior National Championships, Canadian Selection Circuits). It is a program like this that makes Saskatchewan a wonderful place to call home."

John Brunning - VP Technical Sask Fencing



The 1989 Jeux Canada Games Foundation was founded from profits realized from the 1989 Canada Games. Since 1989 the Foundation has grown these assets to exceed $2.5 million and allocated over $2 million to various sport related initiatives in Saskatchewan.


On August 13 2014, the 1989 Jeux Canada Games Foundation Inc. hosted a 25th Anniversary reception in celebration of Saskatoon hosting the 'best ever' Canada Summer Games in 1989.

As part of this celebration the Foundation released a book authored by Ned Powers entitled "The Spirit of '89"---memories from the 1989 Jeux Canada Summer games. This book is a must read from everyone involved in sport in Saskatchewan: volunteers, coaches, managers, athletes, and sponsors.

Contact Heather Kuttai for more information on this book.
