TORONTO – The press accreditation process has begun for the TORONTO 2015 Pan American Games. Journalists, photographers and non-rights-holding broadcasters are invited to express their interest in press accreditation for the TORONTO 2015 Games directly to the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games Organizing Committee (TO2015) Press Operations department.

The deadline for press to submit the Press Accreditation Expression of Interest Form is November 1, 2014.

During the expression of interest period, TO2015 Press Operations will collect information from journalists, photographers and non-rights-holding broadcasters interested in attending next year’s Games. TO2015 Press Operations works with the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) to confirm press accreditations in the “E” category. The COC is ultimately responsible for approving individual press accreditations for the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games.

The Press Accreditation Expression of Interest forms are available at:

Completed forms should be sent directly to TO2015 Press Operations at pressoperations@toronto2015.org.

The TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games will take place July 10–26, 2015.
