Pan Am/Parapan Am Games 2015
Toronto is the host city, with an astonishing 50+ venues across the GTA for both sporting and celebration-related events.
More specifically, 6,000 athletes will be competing at the Pan Am Games with an additional 1,600 competing at the Parapan Am Games. Check back on the Toronto 2015 website closer to the start of the Games for athlete profiles including stats and past accomplishments.
The Games at York University
Leading up to and during the Games, community members on campus can expect to see both increased York University security and members of the ISU. Just like under normal circumstances, it is important to report any suspicious behaviour to campus security.
- The largest encompasses the area around the CIBC Pan Am/Parapan Am Athletics Centre, including the West Office Building.
- The second covers the circumference of the Canadian Tennis Centre (Aviva Centre).
A useful visual has been provided on the YU Link website , noting the specific areas blocked off. Access to restricted areas will require pre-approval and accreditation (the ISU will either recommend or not recommend clearance).
For those who work in the West Office Building, it is important to note that there is one access point available until September 15, 2015. The West Office Building is not accessible from the East, rather, it must be accessed from just North-East of Tait McKenzie.
