Host City Showcase


As the Host City, Toronto will welcome 10,000+ athletes, coaches and officials for the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games. The City will also be visited by approximately 250,000 sport spectators. For more information on the Host City Showcase Program please click here .

The City of Toronto is the sole owner, contact and responsible party for the physical Pan Am Path trail infrastructure. For all queries related to infrastructure work, permitting and maintenance, please contact the City directly at 311.

Friends of the Pan Am Path is an independent community-led non-profit organization that initiated the creation of the Pan Am Path. As the largest Host City Program, Friends of the Pan Am Path has been mandated by Toronto City Council to bring the Path to life with an Arts Relay that will stretch from west to east from May – August 2015 in 14 weeks leading up to and during the Games. The programming will include a strong focus on sport and showcasing the work of Canadian artists with Pan American roots.

The project aims to create a renewed culture of active living; unite the downtown and inner suburbs and create opportunities for young people in the 16 Neighbourhood Improvement Areas along the route.
