TORONTO, Oct. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - The Government of Canada congratulates
Lima, Peru, on winning the bid to be the host city of the 2019 Pan
Am/Parapan Am Games. We wish them all the best as they prepare for this
major sporting event.
The winning city was chosen by delegates at the Pan American Sport
Organization (PASO) General Assembly in Toronto. We were happy to
welcome the Pan American sport community earlier this week as Canada
moves one step closer to delivering exceptional games and celebrating
together in Toronto in 2015.
I wish to thank PASO delegates for visiting Canada and contributing to
the success of this event. We also recognize the other host city bid
contenders on their efforts.
I encourage Canadians to learn more about the Pan Am/Parapan Am Games as
we prepare to welcome the Americas to Toronto 2015.
