Three days, 10 teams from across Canada, thirty-six games, and one incredible weekend of goalball!

For the third yea run a row, the Nova Scotia men’s team captured bronze in the final against Quebec, Alberta secured silver, and British Columbia won gold.
On the women’s side, Ontario All Blacks defeated Alberta in a tight match to win 1st place at least the 10th year in a row. In the east versus west bronze medal game, British Columbia won over Nova Scotia with a score of 4 to 2.
