The Telus Skins Game is a Canadian annual summer golf event, currently sponsored by Telus, and officially known as the Telus World Skins Game. It is hosted at a different golf course each year within Canada.

Since 2006, the Telus Skins Game has also incorporated a "world" theme, which incorporates five golfers from different countries.

In May 2013, it was announced that the Skins Game would not be played after Telus decided not to renew its deal as title sponsor.[1]
