On Thursday, Governor General David Johnston proclaimed 2015 to be the Year of Sport in Canada. A quick look at the sport calendar reveals why.
In 2015, venues in and around Toronto, Ontario will host the largest ever multi-sport event in Canada when the 2015 Pan American Games take place from July 10 to 26. Including Parapan events, #TO2015 expects the arrival of over 10,000 athletes.
From June 6 to July 15, Canada will host the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. The Olympic bronze medal victory following a controversial semifinal defeat to the United States at London 2012 is always on the minds of Canadians who support their country in the world’s game. To exorcise that memory, Canada will hope to hoist the World Cup at home. Host cities for Canada 2015 are Edmonton, Moncton, Montreal, Ottawa, Vancouver and Winnipeg.
