Announcing the 2022 Canadian Game Awards Nominees

The 2022 Canadian Game Awards is right around the corner and we are ready to lift the curtain on this year’s nominees. Our Selection Committee worked hard to narrow down the list of incredible games, developers, and personalities in Canada.

Over the past year, we saw a great number of newly developed games from talented studios and developers here in Canada. The esports scene has also continued to grow strong, with mainstay names and emerging new players striving to represent the country.

We’re honoured to showcase these talented individuals and teams later in April during the Canadian Game Awards. For now, here are this year’s nominees.
