Several serving and former Royal Canadian Air Force personnel are members of the Canadian team that will participate in the 2017 Invictus Games.

On June 15, 2017, Brigadier-General Shane Brennan, commanding officer of the Joint Personnel Support Unit and Head of Mission for Team Canada, announced the 90-member team during an event held at Fort Henry in Kingston, Ontario.

The 2017 Invictus Games are being held in Toronto, September 23 to 30, and will feature 11 sports, including archery, track and field, indoor rowing, powerlifting, cycling, sitting volleyball, swimming, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair tennis, wheelchair rugby and golf. There will also be a driving challenge. 

The Invictus Games were created by Prince Harry in 2014 and are an international adaptive sporting event for ill, wounded and injured active duty and veteran service members. “Invictus” means “unconquered” and shows the fighting spirit of the wounded, ill, and injured service members and the incredible will they have to overcome adversity. The mission of the Games is to honour and help the men and women who have faced the reality of sacrificing for their country by using the power of rehabilitative sports for recovery.
