Rendez-Vous Montréal 2006 Goes on as Planned, from 29 July to 5 August 2006!      
Our Sports Department
is active!
 
The " Rendez-Vous Montréal 2006" Gay Sport and Cultural Festival will reunite over 16,000 gay and lesbian athletes and cultural participants from over 100 countries. The Games' Sports Programme has been carefully planned for the past two years and will feature thirty one sports, all sanctioned by sports federations in Canada and Québec. The Games will also feature opening and closing ceremonies in Montréal's Olympic Stadium and a Cultural Programme will be presented throughout the eight day event. The Games welcome everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation, age, physical ability, athletic/artistic skills or HIV/health status. Moreover, there are no minimum athletic standards to qualify for the event; the only requirement is the desire to support the ideals of the Games, which are Inclusion, Participation and Personal Best. The Organizing Committee expects over 250,000 visitors and $180 million CAD in economic fallout for the city.

The Rendez-Vous Montréal 2006 Organizing Committee is proud of its public and private financial partners, with over $5 million CAD in guaranteed sponsorships. The Games' financial partners are the City of Montréal, the Government of Québec, the Government of Canada, Tourisme Montréal and the Hotel Association of Greater Montréal and Société Radio-Canada.
