Toronto 2015 Pan American Games – Canada’s Sport Organizations (by Adam Goodwin)

Toronto 2015 Pan American Games – Canada’s Sport Organizations

Toronto 2015

In case you live in a shoe or do not live in the Americans (i.e., Central, North, or South America), Toronto, Ontario, Canada hosted the 2015 Pan American Games from July 10 – 26, 2015. The Games wrapped up last Sunday with the Closing Ceremony (Toronto Star article).

May 2015 Blog Post

In May 2015, I published a blog post titled, Canada’s Summer National Sport Organizations (click here to read). The blog post outlined Facebook, Twitter, and website details for most of Canada’s national sport organizations for summer sports (e.g., athletics, basketball).

With Toronto 2015 recently wrapping up, I thought I would make a list of the Canadian NSOs (national sport organizations) for sports at TO2015. Some of this list will be repetitive of the list published in May. However, there are a few unique entries (for the list of all TO2015 sports, click here).

The TO2015 List

The below list is the websites for the Canadian NSOs with sports in TO2015, regardless of if Canadian athletes were participating in the sport. If you notice an error, please let me know!
