Canada at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Paralympic Games

Canada competed at the 2018 Winter Paralympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, from 9 to 18 March 2018. Canada sent a team of 55 athletes to compete in all six sports. The chef de mission was retired sledge hockey player Todd Nicholson, appointed in January 2017. Canada finished the Games with eight gold medals and 28 overall (ranking 3rd and 2nd, respectively). It was the most successful Canadian performance in terms of total medals, surpassing the 19 won at the 2010 Winter Paralympics. Mark Arendz won a Canadian single Games record 6 medals (5 individual and a team relay medal), and was honoured as Canada's flag-bearer for the Games closing ceremony.
