Ontario is investing more than $1.4 million in organizations and communities that will host 11 sport events across the province in an effort to increase economic activity and boost tourism.

Some of the sport events that are being invested in are the 2020 Pan American Wrestling Championships & Olympic Qualification Tournament in Ottawa, the 2020 Canada Basketball 15U and 17U National Championships in Kingston, and the 2020 Volleyball Canada Beach Nationals Championship in Toronto.

The government is also increasing access to funding for communities and sport organizers to host sport events by creating new application streams. The number of eligible sports events will also be expanded to include amateur combative sports and emerging sports.

Applications for the Sport Hosting Program will accepted by the government until February 10th, 2020. To apply, please click here
