Welcome again to the Canada Day Strength Spectacular! This year the event will consist of two strength competitions:

  1. Western Canada’s Strongest Man & Woman
  2. Fort McMurray Highland Games

Western Canada’s Strongest Man & Woman

In partnership with Circuit Hommes Forts and the Strongman Corporation of Canada, local gym Crude Strength & Performance is proud to present the first ever combined Western Canada’s Strongest Man & Woman.  Athletes will compete in 8 strength-based events over two days to qualify for Canada’s Strongest Man, and Strongest Woman in Canada competitions. Fort McMurray is known as one of the premier locations for Strongman/strongwoman competitions in the province since 2008, having been host recently to three Provincial championships in 2016, 2018, and 2020, as well as the Canadian National championship in 2021.

Fort McMurray Highland Games

The Alberta Highland Games Association partnering with MacDonald Island Park will be presenting the second Fort McMurray Highland Games Heavy Events. Featuring premiere professional Heavy Events athletes from Western Canada performing traditional Scottish feats of strength, including the quintessential Caber Toss.

There will be a Men’s and Women’s Open division, both competing in the morning in events with a long history in Canada and Scotland, dating back to the 11th century.


Athletes from across Canada will be here to participate in both of these events so keep your eyes peeled! Free for public to come and watch down at Mac Island July 1 & 2, 2023.
