Canada Olympic Excellence Day

On the eve of the Opening Ceremonies of the Pan American Games in Toronto, the Canadian Olympic Committee will open the doors of the Canadian Olympic House right in the heart of downtown Montreal. Fueled by the shared passion of Canadians from coast to coast that was on full display to the world at Montreal 1976, Calgary 1988 and Vancouver 2010, Canada Olympic Excellence Day will stand as a symbol of Canada’s growing role on the global Olympic landscape. This historic day of celebration will be comprised of five major components, including the World Sport Luncheon with International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach as keynote speaker; a first glance at the interactive and immersive Olympic Experience, the opening of the high-tech Lausanne Room, spectacular artistic and musical performances in the hall of the newly-minted Canadian Olympic House, and the climax of this extraordinary day: the unveiling of the Olympic Rings high atop the Canadian Olympic House.
