On behalf of the North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) Council, I am pleased to officially open the bid process for the 2020 North American Indigenous Games. 

Attached is the 2020 NAIG Bid Procedures Manual. It outlines the processes from which an interested city, community or organization within Canada, can bid to host the Games.  The Manual provides the major milestones that must be met by all bidders and expectations after the games are awarded. The 2020 NAIG Bid Procedures Manual also includes reference material such as hosting standards, contractual milestones, Governing Rules, Sport Technical Packages, General Code of Conduct, and a sample Agreement to Undertake Letter.

A 2020 NAIG Bid Committee has been convened. This committee has direct oversight over the bid process and will advise all host candidate cities of the bid evaluation process.

Inquiries can be directed to Mel Whitesell, Interim Bid Committee Chair, at  Ms. Whitesell will coordinate communication with the 2020 NAIG Bid Committee and the NAIG Council.

I want to extend my best wishes to all interested parties and I look forward to our journey towards announcing a host for the 2020 North American Indigenous Games.
