(June 18, 2013) Report from the City Manager

Summary

In a little over two years, Toronto will host the TORONTO 2015 Pan American / Parapan American Games, the largest international multi-sport event (measured by number of participating athletes and sport competitions) ever held in Canada. The Games are expected to draw 10,000 athletes and officials and up to 250,000 visitors to the Toronto region. Training and competition venues for the 51 sports that will be featured at the TORONTO 2015 Games will be located in 13 municipalities across the Greater Golden Horseshoe.

 

To take full advantage of the opportunities this significant event presents – and to protect and strengthen Toronto's international brand and reputation – this report outlines the anticipated benefits, costs and elements of a Pan/Parapan Am Games Host City Showcase Program for the City of Toronto. A description of sound public policy criteria and processes used to support the identification and evaluation of Host City Showcase Program initiatives is also provided.

 

The four main elements of the proposed $15.428M Pan Am Games Host City Showcase Program include:

 

-           a commitment of up to $2.500M for a Public Celebration & Cultural Festival in Nathan Phillips Square;

 

-           an investment of up to $2.700 M for a Host City Welcome & Engagement Program to support Games related marketing and communication activities, and enhanced visitor and business services;

 

-           funding of up to $6.228M for 16 innovative projects which will leverage the profile of the Games to advance City Council endorsed objectives related to (i) economic development and tourism, (ii) sport development and healthy living, and (iii) resident engagement and cultural celebration; and

 

-           flexibility to invest up to an additional $4.000M over the next two years in other Host City Showcase Program initiatives championed by the City or Games partners, subject to the development of business cases, evaluation using criteria outlined in this report, and final review and consideration by City Council.

 

Implementing the Host City Showcase Program recommended in this report will help attract additional funding and support from Games partners, including the Organizing Committee for the TORONTO 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games ("TO2015").

 

The Host City Showcase Program will also have a significant positive impact on the overall quality and experience of the TORONTO 2015 Games for city residents and businesses; visitors and dignitaries; athletes, coaches and officials; and local and international media.

 

A related purpose of this report is to describe and propose the establishment of a new Major Special Event Reserve Fund which would be used, initially, to fund components of the Showcase Program. This Reserve Fund has the potential to be one of the most important institutional legacies of the Games, as it would position Toronto to more effectively pursue and deliver other high profile events by providing a funding source to cover (a share of the) non-recurring bidding, municipal service and enhanced City programming costs associated with such events.
