The City has also named 16 community torchbearers who were identified for the contributions they have made to their communities. Full biographies for each community torchbearer are available at http://bit.ly/1L3eMza.

Torontonians are encouraged to come out along the relay route and cheer on the torchbearers who will carry the Pan Am flame through city streets. More information about the torch relay route is available at http://www.TORONTO2015.ORG/torch-relay

The public is reminded that there will be road closures and rolling road closures as the relay travels through city streets. Residents and visitors are encouraged to use public transit, carpooling, cycling or walking to the community celebrations and to watch the relay. Those who are driving should allow extra time to get to and from their destination.
