Abstract

Environment and Climate Change Canada showcased its research, development, and service initiatives in meteorology, air quality, and health during the Pan and Parapan American Games in 2015. he Pan and Parapan American Games (PA15) were hosted in the Toronto, Canada, area from 10 to 26 July and 7 to 15 August 2015 and were the third-largest sporting event in the world. They include many sports that are considered for future inclusion at Olympic competitions. A strategic insight was to exploit the prestige and firm deadlines of major events, such as PA15, to accelerate, coordinate, and demonstrate research and operational development projects. Within the context of PA15 and the related challenges of providing urban-scale weather, AQ, and health alerts and services, an integrated project called the Environment Canada Pan and Parapan American Science Showcase was initiated.
