Ville de Châteauguay Mobilizes for the 57th Quebec Games Finals

Thursday, 25 July, 2019

Châteauguay, July 25, 2019 – Ville de Châteauguay held a mobilization meeting on Wednesday, July 24, at the Centre culturel G.-P. Vanier, for Châteauguay’s candidacy to host the 57th Quebec Games Finals in summer 2022. The meeting was attended by sports, cultural and community organizations, companies and citizens. MarieChantal Chassé, députée de Châteauguay, was also there.
Ville de Châteauguay has been involved in the bidding process since September 2018. There are only two other cities that remain in the running, Drummondville and Rimouski. 
“We are at a crucial stage of the project,” explained Pierre-Paul Routhier, Mayor of Châteauguay. We have to prove that we have a network of partners involved and interested in embarking with us on this adventure, which will have great benefits for the City and the surrounding area.”
 
Better together
 
The public is encouraged to support the event, which is intended to be inclusive and participatory. The www.chateauguay2022.com website (also available in English version) was created so that residents throughout the South West can virtually support Châteauguay’s nomination. The slogan, ‘Meilleurs ensemble’’, is also translated into English and Mohawk, which demonstrates the involvement of our residents and a desire to include all the communities in our region. 

The website also offers the public the opportunity to become volunteers, both for the organization phase as well as during the Games themselves. “The committee that analyzes our application requires formal commitments from the community’s stakeholders,” added Mr. Routhier. The interest demonstrated by the local organizations and residents present was palpable during this first meeting, especially when the Mayor explained the benefits for the municipality, which would include major investments in sports infrastructure.
The public is invited to follow the next steps of the nomination process on the website and Facebook pages created for the Ville de Châteauguay’s initiative.

The Quebec Games Finals
 
The summer Quebec Games Finals are held every two years, with more than 3,300 athletes participating between the ages of 12 and 17, and 1,200 coaches, chaperones and officials from 19 regions of Quebec. In summer 2022 for its 57th year, the Quebec Games Finals will be presenting 14 sports.
 
An event of this scale promotes sports participation, organisational skills development, infrastructure upgrading and special equipment purchases.
 
The host community will be announced in December by SportsQuébec, after analyzing the nominations submitted.
