The Invictus Games Toronto 2017 are being organised by the 2017 Invictus Games Organising Committee. The Organising Committee was established to build on the success of the London 2014 and Orlando 2016 Invictus Games to put on an event that will capture the imaginations of the Canadian public, corporations and governments, as well as soldiers, veterans and their families.
Hosting the Games in Canada in 2017, the year the country celebrates its 150th anniversary, will provide a unique opportunity for Canadians to commemorate and honour its ill, wounded and injured soldiers, and their families.
The Invictus Games Toronto 2017 will also mark the beginning of a legacy program to support the growth of adaptive sport programs in Canada and to further personal and professional opportunities for servicemen and women transitioning from the Canadian Armed Forces.
