Philosophy

The philosophy of the CANUSA Games is to demonstrate the practicality of a community approach to International goodwill between the cities of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and Flint, Michigan, U.S.A., through the vehicle of amateur athletics.

Families from the host city open their homes to the people from the visiting city in the spirit of goodwill and neighbourliness that marks the friendly rivalry between the competitors of the two cities.

The CANUSA Organization believes that world peace and understanding among people must begin in peoples’ hearts, that neighbours must understand neighbours, and that people must learn to live together in neighborhoods and cities before nations can understand nations and the world can live in peace. To this end the CANUSA Games provide an opportunity at the grass roots level to learn to understand each other’s similarities, differences and problems, to work together, and to find the means for individuals to improve themselves and their cities.

Thus, Our Motto…

“Experience the Friendship “
