The 55+ BC Games are presented on an annual basis in different host cities by the BC Seniors Games Society (BCSGS). The 55+ BC Games were previously held in Greater Victoria in 2022 where they hosted over 2,500 participants in the first post-COVID era.

The 55+ BC Games are an important part of the BC sport system and the largest annual multi-sport gathering event in the province. The Games offer the opportunity to celebrate sport and active living with other participants from across the province and experience the hospitality of the Host City.

Each year the Games attract approximately 3500 participants and require approximately 1,200 volunteers to stage and deliver the Games in the Host Community.

Participant registration for the 2023 Abbotsford 55+ BC Games will open March 1, 2023. For more information about the 55+ BC Games, visit
