The single-largest multi-sport event ever held in Canada is almost here!
From July – August, 2015, the Region of Durham, Ontario, Canada, will proudly host the Pan American and Parapan Am Games.
In fact, more than 40 venues throughout the Greater Toronto Area – from Oshawa to Welland to Minden Hills – will welcome approximately 10,000 athletes, coaches and officials from 41 different countries.
The Games take place from July 10 to 26, and the Parapan Am Games from August 7 to 15. Within that time, 250,000 tourists will visit the GTA to watch 51 sporting events including 36 Pan Am events and 15 Parapan events.
Greater than 20,000 volunteers will help direct and guide 250,000 tourists this summer.
