Canadian Sport Institute Ontario (CSIO) would like to congratulate the 284 athletes, numerous coaches and countless support staff from Ontario, as well as the entire Canadian Pan American Team, for an outstanding performance at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto. The Canadian Team delivered powerful performances, captivating and inspiring the nation.

It was a best-ever medal performance for Canada at the Games, with the Team eclipsing it’s previous record of 196 medals won in Winnipeg in 1999, with a remarkable 217 medals. Team Canada also accomplished its goal to be in the top two nations in terms of overall medals won.

The Games saw 168 Ontario athletes reach the podium a total of 201 times, contributing to 103 (40 Gold, 30 Silver, 33 Bronze) of the 217 (78 Gold, 69 Silver, 70 Bronze) medals won by Team Canada. That is a remarkable 47% of all medals won by Team Canada.

“It was an amazing Pan Am Games for Ontario and Canada. CSIO is extremely proud of our Ontario athletes, their performances and their success on the podium,” said Debbie LowCEO of Canadian Sport Institute Ontario. “Congratulations to all of the athletes and coaches on a job well done, you have represented Canada with pride and your performances have inspired the next generation of high performance athletes. A big thank you to the Government of Canada and Sport Canada; the Province of Ontario and the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport; the City of Toronto; the TO2015 organizing committee; and the incredible volunteers.
