The Games Leave a Lasting Legacy for Ontario
Ontario is celebrating the outstanding performance of Team Canada competitors at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto, and the lasting legacy that the Games will leave for people across the province.
The morning sun is beautiful as it sits over the lake at Ontario Place during The Active Ontario Festival. You can hear the buzz of volunteers and booths being set up, as well as young families beginning their day to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday through being active. The atmosphere is calm and the weather is picture perfect. We had beautiful skies for the majority of our time at the Parasport Ontario Booth, along with a few good laughs as athletes and participants rushed into the building from our sport demonstrations.
