This Team will be the first to wear the new perennial logo for Special Olympics Canada’s National Team Program.

The iconic maple leaf is re-invented with three shapes linked together that define our founding principle of inclusion, as well as the shared unity and sportsmanship of our athletes. For the first time in our history, Special Olympics Team Canada members for years to come will all be unified under the same banner.
