Korey Jarvis has been representing Canada internationally since 2007 but it was in 2014 when he earned his first victories, taking gold at the City of Sassari Tournament and the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. That was his second Commonwealth Games medal, having won silver at Delhi 2010. He went on to win silver at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast.
Jarvis competed in Greco-Roman wrestling at the 2011 Pan American Games but came up short of qualifying for the London 2012 Olympic Games in that discipline. He won silver in the 125kg freestyle division at the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto and represented Canada at his first Olympic Games at Rio 2016, placing 8th in the 125kg category. At the Lima 2019 Pan Am Games, Jarvis won bronze in the 125kg weight class.
A five-time world championship team member, Jarvis has made nine appearances at the Pan American Championships, winning nine medals, including bronzes in both the freestyle and Greco-Roman disciplines in 2011.
