TORONTO: Infrastructure Ontario and TO2015 have shortlisted several companies to build and finance three venues for the Toronto 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games. The facilities will also address the long-term needs of growing communities across the Greater Toronto Area and encourage the development and promotion of amateur competitive sports locally. The project includes:

  • Construction of a new Markham pool and field house facility that will host the water polo and badminton competitions for the Games;
  • Renovations and improvements to the existing Etobicoke Olympium facility, which will be the training site for swimming, water polo, diving and synchronized swimming during the Games; and
  • Construction of a new two-field Pan American field hockey centre; plans include the two fields to be located on University of Toronto lands.

Over the past few months, companies participated in a request for qualifications (RFQ) process that reviewed their construction and financing abilities to deliver the project. Following Infrastructure Ontario’s evaluations of the RFQ submissions, the following companies were short-listed and will be invited to respond to the request for proposals (RFP) for the project:

  • PCL Constructors Canada Inc
  • EllisDon Corporation
  • Bondfield Construction Company Limited

The RFP will be issued in February, said Infrastructure Ontario. The construction of these facilities and their operation during the Pan/Parapan American Games is a joint initiative of the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada, in partnership with the Town of Markham, City of Toronto and the University of Toronto.
