    Plan ahead for summer - it may take longer to get to Holland Bloorview during the Pan Am Games


    The TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games will take place July 10-26, 2015 and the Parapan Am Games will run from August 7-15, 2015. The games will bring a number of temporary changes to the region’s transportation system such as lane restrictions, turning bans, new high occupancy vehicle (HOV) or carpool lanes.

    Heavy traffic delays may impact the commute to and from locations, especially during rush hours.

    It is business as usual at Holland Bloorview but it is important to understand these changes and how they may affect your commute.

    Be sure to stay on top of all traffic plans on the Pan Am Games official website. Some of the traffic measures begin in late June, before the games officially begin, so make sure you check the site if you are coming to Holland Bloorview between late June and late August.
