About the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games

This summer, Toronto and the Greater Golden Horseshoe region will host the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games. This will be the largest international multi-sport event ever hosted in Canada.  The TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games take place from July 10 to 26, 2015 and the TORONTO 2015 Parapan Am Games from August 7 to 15, 2015. The Games will welcome more than 10,000 athletes and officials from 41 countries as well as tourists, media and members of the Games family.

The City of Mississauga is one of 14 communities outside of Toronto that will host events in both the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games.  The Hershey Centre will be known during Games time as the Mississauga Sports Centre where Mississauga will host seven sport competitions: judo, karate, taekwondo, wrestling, goalball, powerlifting and wheelchair rugby. To help keep athletes, spectators, business owners and residents moving safely and efficiently during the Games, the City will implement some temporary traffic measures.
