The TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games

On July 10, 2015, close to 7,000 athletes from across Latin America, South America, the Caribbean and North America will put their years of intense training, perseverance and sacrifice to the test in world-class competition in 36 Pan Am sports and 15 Parapan Am sports at the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am / Parapan Am Games (TO2015).

The Pan Am Games take place from July 10 to 26 and the Parapan Am Games from August 7 to 15 and will involve municipalities stretching from Oshawa to Welland.

The Pan American Games are the world’s third largest international multi-sport Games; they are only surpassed in size and scope by the Olympic Summer Games and the Asian Games.

The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) is one of the Aboriginal partners involved with the Pan-Am Games. As part of our involvement, the MNO is promoting opportunities to our citizens to participate in employment, service and cultural activities.

Games of this magnitude cannot happen without the help of volunteers, some 20,000 of whom will help deliver the best Pan Am/Parapan Am Games ever.
