About the games:

 The Games of La Francophonie were created in 1987 during the Summit of La Francophonie in Quebec City. The mandate of the Comité international des Jeux de la Francophonie (CIJF), which reports to the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF), is to oversee the overall organization of the Games in the host country. The Games of La Francophonie are held every four years. A huge event for young people, the Games bring together hundreds of athletes and artists from across La Francophonie. In 2013, more than 3,000 participants  from 48 delegations are expected to attend. Since the inception of the Games of La Francophonie, the Canadian delegation has consisted of three teams: Canada, Canada-New Brunswick and Canada-Quebec. Team Canada selects members from across the country, while Team Quebec and Team New Brunswick select members from their respective provinces. Selection is based on excellence, not on linguistic affiliation. Athletes and artists whose mother tongue is not French and who do not speak French may participate in the Games of La Francophonie.

Athletics New Brunswick (ANB) is the provincial organizing body for track and field, cross country running, race walking, and road racing. It is the official Branch of Athletics Canada.
