The Olympic and Paralympic Swimming Trials will return to the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre in 2028 [read more]

Image source: Gerard Richardson/Swimming Canada  

The Olympic and Paralympic Swimming Trials will return to the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre in 2028. 

TPASC hosted the Trials in 2016, and again in 2021 after the 2020 event was postponed due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. The seven-day fully integrated meet is scheduled for June 2-8, 2028, and will serve as Swimming Canada’s main selection meet for the Los Angeles 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games. 

“It is great that Swimming Canada continues to be well planned and prepared, as we focus on the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, but also have a well-structured strategy to the 2028 Games in LA,” said Swimming Canada High Performance Director and National Coach John Atkinson. 

Swim Ontario led the bid to bring the event back for 2028, in the world-class pool that has hosted the 2015 Pan American Games and multiple other national and international events, including last year’s Canadian Swimming Trials and Swimming World Cup, both of which saw world record performances. 

“In a relatively short period of time, TPASC has already hosted many fantastic swimming moments and been a part of history. It is a fantastic legacy of the 2015 Pan Am Games, and we are thrilled to be back here on our road to LA for our 2028 Olympic and Paralympic team trials,” Atkinson said.

“Swim Ontario is pleased to partner with Swimming Canada and the great community of Ontario volunteers and officials to host the 2028 Trials at the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre,” added Swim Ontario CEO Dean Boles. “TPASC continues to provide an environment to earn success due to world-class people working together at a world-class facility here in Toronto.”

"We are proud to be hosting and continuing our long-term partnerships with Swim Canada and Swim Ontario. It’s wonderful for our entire community to get to experience this exciting and world-class event in Scarborough," commented TPASC Managing Director, Robert Singleton. 

Swimming Canada expects to announce its full slate of 2025-2028 event dates and host locations in early 2024. This includes the annual Trials in non-Olympic/Paralympic years, Canadian Open, Masters championships, Open Water Festival, and Ken Demchuk International Invitational.

“TPASC and Swim Ontario continue to be great partners and we look forward to continuing our work together in the coming years,” said Jocelyn Jay, acting associate director, sport development. “Local organizing committees, officials and volunteers provide so much value to hosting our events. We continue to communicate with our potential hosts and we are looking forward to working with them in the next quadrennial.”

Please pay or validate your parking ticket at the ticket machine before departing the building. [read more]


Reminder to all facility users that park in the East Parking Lot.

Please pay or validate your parking ticket at the ticket machine before departing the building. There is a payment/validation machine located at the doors to the East Entrance/Exit.

There is only one exit to the East Lot and if there are issues at the gate, it will delay all others departing the parking lot. 

Why should I validate my ticket?

The validation process confirms that your ticket is either still valid for two hours of free parking, or you have eclipsed the two-hour timeframe and need to pay for parking. Validating your ticket gives you a 30-minute window to leave the parking lot and have your ticket still work at the exit; you won’t be forced to repark and return to the building if your ticket has passed the 2-hour mark.

Pay with the Passage Pass App

PassagePass is a convenient way to pay for parking. With PassagePass, save time and skip the pay station by paying for your parking through the app!  

Illegal Parking

On event weekends with increased demand, cars have been parking illegally in the parking lots. Any car not parking in a designated parking area is subject to a parking fine issued by Municipal Bylaw Enforcement.

The South Parking Lot will be closing on October 10th to be replaced by a new interim lot, the East Lot. [read more]

The Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre South Parking Lot will be closing on October 10th to be replaced by a new interim lot, the East Lot, located across from the East Entrance to the Centre. This lot is accessible via Pan Am Drive and will be paved, lit, and contain the same number of parking spots available in the current TPASC lot. There will still be two hours complimentary.

The East Lot will open on October 10th, the same day that the South Lot closes and will utilize the same technology as the existing lots.

Parking pass holders will continue to access the new East Lot via license plate recognition. 

There will be no changes to the North Lot. 

During events, UTSC lots may still be used as overflow parking. 

The TPASC South Lot is closing to begin the construction of the University of Toronto Scarborough’s Academy of Medicine and Integrated Health. 

More information will be communicated in the future as the construction project enters different phases.
