Be a Part of the Ontario ParaSport Games Program

Join the team of municipalities that are proud to say – “We’ve hosted the Ontario ParaSport Games!”

The Ontario ParaSport Games promote public awareness of the Paralympic movement, sport and showcase Ontario's best athletes. The Ontario ParaSport Games provide host communities with an opportunity to make their community’s barrier free and leave a legacy for persons with a disability in the community.

The Ontario ParaSport Games are an annual event held in the selected host community. Over 425 participants, including athletes, coaches/managers, support staff and officials take part in 3 days of competition amongst 7-10 sports. Over 150 volunteers help to bring this event together and contribute to its success. The Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport supports the Ontario ParaSport Games and provides the host community with partnership funding worth $60 000.

In recent years there has been significant change in the development of the Ontario Games Program. It is therefore a very exciting time to be hosting a set of Games!! The Games offer participants, volunteers and spectators an opportunity to experience the excitement of a major competitive event, while leaving behind an important legacy of community pride and sport tourism development.
