As of Friday May 15th, 2015 the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre (TPASC) begins construction in preparation for the 2015 Pan and Parapan Am Games.

While the building is closed to the public, CSIO and its athletes and coaches are still permitted to utilize the CSIO space.

Note: There is no access to the public weight room, studio classes, fieldhouse, or competition and training pools.

There are a few important pieces of information regarding parking and access to the facility that you need to be aware of:
