Apr 19, 2007

On May 5, 2007, 130 of the province's best athletes with disabilities will compete at the Paralympics Ontario Regional Games.  In January 2007, the City of Mississauga and Mississauga Tourism presented a bid in partnership to Paralympics Ontario and were selected to host the Paralympics Ontario Regional Games.

The games will be held:

May 5, 2007

8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

St. Marcellinus Secondary School – Track & Field Area
730 Courtneypark Drive West
Mississauga Secondary School – Indoor Boccia
550 Courtneypark Drive West

Paralympics Ontario was established in 1981 with the mandate of providing competitive opportunities for athletes with a physical disability. "Paralympics" was selected as a name to signify the Paralympic games are parallel to the Olympic games. 

"This event is a wonderful opportunity to create greater awareness for athletes with disabilities, disability issues and see facilities be used by persons of all abilities as they were meant to be," said City of Mississauga Accessibility Coordinator, Diana Simpson.

For more information on the games, please contact Pat Craigmile Manager of Sports at 905-615-3200 extension 5345 or by e-mail at
