2020 NAIG

NAIG 2020 Volunteers & Officials,

On behalf of Swim Nova Scotia and the NAIG 2020 Swimming Organizing Committee, I would like to thank you for volunteering to be part of NAIG 2020 Swimming.  Below is an update from the NAIG 2020 Organizing Committee related to the postponement of this summer’s scheduled event.

As information becomes available, it will be shared with all of you. We hope that you will join us in 2021!



COVID-19 has brought our world into an extraordinary situation, and many have been reaching out to NAIG 2020 on how this is impacting the Games.

NAIG 2020 is an important event for Indigenous youth, and we want to thank you for your concern and interest and respond to your thoughts and worries.

We all understand the importance of working as one to flatten the curve, even if it means putting something amazing on hold, for now.

The health and safety for all communities across Turtle Island has been and remains our top-priority, and we would like to let you know the Games have been postponed.

We will be working with our partners and funders to implement options around the postponement to 2021, and we have plenty of work ahead.

Know that athletes who age out before the rescheduled Games will still be eligible, and stay tuned to our social media for updates.

Wela’lioq, from the NAIG 2020 team./ Pjila’si
