Four ground-based radiometers (ultraviolet radiation instruments) were deployed in the Greater Golden Horseshoe Area in support of the Games. They reported minute-by-minute observations of the ultraviolet (UV) component of sun exposure as defined by the Global Solar UV Index (UVI). The ultraviolet index or UV Index is an international standard measurement of the strength of sunburn-producing UV radiation at a particular place and time. The readings from these sensors were used to inform the operational forecast program, particularly to provide data for validation of the UV index forecasts from the Environment and Climate Change Canada numerical modelling system.

The high spatial and temporal resolution network was comprised of new automated land- and marine-based weather stations, and additional experimental monitoring platforms. Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) designed the Mesonet to monitor weather at the venues, while providing close tracking of southern Ontario lake breezes, which can be associated with severe weather initiation and high air pollutant concentrations. To track the lake breeze, existing land and marine monitoring capacity was identified and expanded to define the Mesonet. The Games hosted a number of open-water events in the inner harbour and south of the Toronto Islands, an area where the competition or logistics could be affected by thunderstorms, severe weather or heat stress.

Environment and Climate Change Canada added 40 compact stations, 10 ATMOS stations and 3 standard automated MSC Auto8 stations to the existing networks to form a high-resolution monitoring system across southern Ontario known as the Mesonet. These stations provided both high-density spacing and high-frequency minute-by-minute observations. Standard meteorological variables were reported—atmospheric pressure, wind speed and direction, relative humidity, temperature and precipitation amounts—as well as a new element recorded by a black globe thermometer, used in the evaluation of heat stress on the human body. The new automated surface weather stations were configured to report every minute, a sharp departure from the standard hourly reporting.

The Pan and Parapan American Games are a regional international summer sporting event, staged every 4 years in the year prior to the Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games. The 2015 Games were awarded to Canada on November 6, 2009, by the Pan American Sports Organization. The XVII Pan American Games and the V Parapan American Games were held in Toronto, Canada, from July 10–26, 2015, and from August 7–15, 2015, respectively. Canada welcomed the 40 other countries/nations of the Americas to Toronto and the municipalities of the Greater Golden Horseshoe Area in Ontario where the summer sports events of the 2015 Pan and Parapan American Games were hosted.

Mesoscale boundaries have an important influence on mesoscale weather. They can trigger, enhance or inhibit convections and severe weather. They are also indicators of shifts in wind speed and direction, temperature and relative humidity, and can affect air quality and heat indices. Around the Great Lakes, it has been observed that mesoscale boundaries are prevalent and can have complex interactions between each other.

The Apprenticeship Incentive Grant (AIG) is a federal grant program that was implemented in 2007 that provides taxable cash grants of $1,000 (to a maximum of $2,000) to registered Red Seal apprentices who successfully complete their first and/or second year of training. The objectives of the AIG are to: increase access to apprenticeships in Red Seal Program trades; to encourage progression in and completion of apprenticeship training; and promote inter-provincial mobility. A new $2000 Apprenticeship Completion Grant (ACG) was introduced in 2009 to complement the AIG. In 2009 an advertising campaign was launched to raise awareness of the AIG with apprentices and with young adults considering entering into the trades.

The aging of the Canadian population represents significant challenges. The 2011 Speech from the Throne stated that “this demographic challenge will impact our economic future and put long term pressures on our pension and health systems that must be addressed.” Notably:

Life expectancy has been steadily increasing for both women and men in recent decades. For example, in 1996, a man at age 65 was expected to receive OAS benefits for less than 14 years. As a result of increased life expectancy, in 2010, it is now expected that he will be receiving benefits for 20 years.
