After more than 25 years, the 55+ BC Games will again be hosted by the City of Surrey in 2027.
Following the successful bid, the The BC Seniors Games Society announced the host cities from 2024 to 2027, including Salmon Arm in 2024, Nanaimo in 2025 and Kamloops in 2026.
“It is an honour to be chosen as the host city for the 2027 55+ BC Games. Together with our partners, businesses, and community, this sporting event will provide an unforgettable experience for fans, athletes, and member organizations,” said Surrey mayor Brenda Locke.
