Métis Nation of Ontario Ensuring Métis have a Role in 2015 Pan-Am and Parapan Games

The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) is participating in the organizing committee for one of the world’s largest athletic events. The Pam-Am and Parapan Games are second only to the Olympics and Para-Olympics in size, scope and grandeur and will be taking place July 10-26 and August 7-14, 2015, in Toronto. The Games will attract more than 10,000 athletes and officials from all over the Western Hemisphere and more than 250,000 tourists from all over the world. It is expected the Games will generate more than 15,000 jobs and require more than 20,000 volunteers.  For more information, visit the Pan-Am and Parapan Games Website at:
