The Parapan Am Games have started

August 07, 2015

​The Parapan Am Games are from August 7 to 15.

During the games, there will be about a 20 per cent increase in traffic across the city. This may make it harder to get around the city during the games.

Because of the increased traffic, some Toronto Community Housing services may be affected. For example, it might take longer for someone to reach your home to complete repairs. All Toronto Community Housing offices will keep regular hours during the Parapan Am Games.

Both the Client Care Centre and the Community Safety Unit will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help residents. You can reach the Client Care Centre by calling 416-981-5500 or emailing help@toro​ntohousing.ca for non-urgent matters. You can reach the Community Safety Unit by calling 416-921-2323.

If your home is near a location where the Parapan Am Games are being held, there might be road closures or restrictions. If your street is affected by a closure, the City of Toronto will notify you. The Pan Am and Par​apan Am Games website has a map of every venue that will hold events during the games.

The Pan Am and Parapan Am Games website has a detailed trip planner. The trip planner has details of local road closures to help you get around during the games. You can also download a version of the trip planner to your personal smartphone, for hands-free directions while driving. ​
