TO 2015 Releases New Blocks of Pan Am Tickets

TO2015 Releases New Blocks of Pan Am Games Tickets for High-Demand Events
It’s not too late to join the action!

All new blocks of tickets will be released on Monday, July 6 at 11 a.m. (ET), and will be available at

With athletes arriving on Canadian soil, the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games Organizing Committee (TO2015) is releasing small blocks of new tickets to the most high-demand events.

To date, spectators have snapped up about three-quarters of a million tickets to the Games, and more than 100 Pan Am events — including almost 75 medal events — are fully sold out, giving hometown athletes the largest cheering section possible.

“Racing in front of a home crowd gives us a huge benefit over our competitors: not only seeing that red and white, but hearing the roar of the crowd can really help you push through the pain you feel at the end of your race,” said Canadian Olympic silver and bronze medallist, swimming, Ryan Cochrane. “It’s a humbling and exciting time to be an athlete in Canada, and swimming in front of a sold-out crowd at home is an experience I’m absolutely looking forward to.”

With preparations for the Games nearing completion, TO2015 is ready to release small blocks of previously unavailable tickets for many of the highest demand events, including the Opening Ceremony, equestrian, basketball, football, diving and athletics – track and field. All new blocks of tickets will be released on Monday, July 6 at 11 a.m. (ET), and will be available at

"We're very excited to finally be able to release these tickets to the public and we expect them to go fast," said Saäd Rafi, chief executive officer, TO2015. "This is the first time some of these events have been available since September 2014. As expected, we’re selling more tickets every day as we get closer to the Games. This is a great opportunity to see some high-demand events."

Typically in multi-sport Games, organizers hold back tickets until the number of athletes and officials attending the competition is confirmed, to accommodate potential seating adjustments and ensure good sight lines.

Once the final blocks of tickets are sold, these events will likely not be available again. The number of tickets released in each sport is very limited, so purchasers who hope to snap them up should purchase as soon as possible.

Integrated tickets: Every event ticket will allow the holder to access transit on the day of the event.

Affordable pricing: Tickets start at just $20, with 75 per cent of tickets priced $45 and under.

Half-price tickets for persons under 16 years of age, or 65 and over: Tickets will be offered at a 50 per cent discount — some will start at $10. The number of discounted tickets is limited, so buy early.

Easy options for buying: Tickets can be purchased online at or at 1.855.726.2015 and internationally at 1.949.333.4824.

2015 Restricted Accesss to the Gull River (Jun 10 to end of July)

Restricted access to Gull River (June 10th the end of July)

 For paddlers planning to visit the Gull River at the Minden Wildwater Preserve we wish to advise on the following restrictions.

TO2015 has commenced construction of various temporary installations at the Gull River in preparation for the Pan-AM Canoe slalom events July 18-19th As result there are some restrictions on access, especially from river right and Harrington park.

Commencing June 10th most of River right trails and access will be blocked with construction fencing in order to comply with Ministry of Labour construction zone safety requirements.

In order to ensure ongoing paddler access, Whitewater Ontario has negotiated continued access to the river from river left, through the Minden Wildwater Preserve camping area and trail.

Paddlers may park at the Roger Parsons centre and use the lateral river trail to put in/takeout at the dam, below horseshoe falls and at the lake though to July 7th.

From July 7th through July 24th there will be no river access other than for accredited athletes and officials. TO2015 will endeavor to complete removal of installations as quickly as possible, following the slalom events

In addition, camping at the preserve will continue to be available until July 7th but is restricted to the meadows area in front of the RPC building. 

Orillia Power Generation Proposal Update: June 2015

Orillia Power is developing their application for a hydro generation project on the Gull River in Minden. WO leases some land from Orillia Power at the Minden Wild Water Preserve and Orillia Power is proposing a hydro generation project where a tunnel would run from the dam at the top of the Gull, under part of the campground through WO and OPG owned land, and out to a generating building river left downstream of the final rapids on the Gull.

They have presented WO with a draft MOU for consideration. WO is gathering information on land ownership, implications of the proposed project and finding a lawyer who can help advise on the project. We will keep members updated as things proceed, if you would you like more information or if you have questions, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
