Toronto 2015 Awaits PASO

Toronto 2015 Pan American Games bid officials are getting ready to welcome the Pan American Sports Organization’s (PASO) Evaluation Commission that will be in the city for a two-day tour August 30 and 31, visiting proposed Games venues and facilities.

David Peterson, Chair of Toronto 2015 said in a press release, “we’re thrilled to welcome the Evaluation Commission and are ready to make our case as the ideal city to host the 2015 Pan American Games. We’ve worked very hard to put together an excellent bid. We now have the chance to show PASO first-hand the world-class venues, infrastructure, attractions and exciting new facilities that we can deliver”.

The Evaluation Commission will assess key elements of Toronto’s bid and report findings to PASO, the organization responsible for the Games and whose member nations vote to award hosting rights.

During the two-day visit Toronto 2015 has a busy schedule of tours, meetings and presentations planned for the commission. The commission members will be introduced to the people and organizations critical to the Toronto 2015 Games and its operations as well as visit proposed Games venues and facilities across the Greater Golden Horseshoe.
