The relay begins at 3:50 p.m. on Dorval Drive at Lakeshore Road and will travel east on Lakeshore Road to Shipyard Park where torchbearer Camille Looper of the Burloak Canoe Club will board a war canoe and paddle up Sixteen Mile Creek to the docks of the club.

Centennial Square will come alive with Pan Am spirit and plenty of entertainment including sports displays by the Oakville Soccer and Basketball Clubs, cultural performances by the Canadian Caribbean Association of Halton, a Road to the Podium community chalk art mural, the singing of “O Canada” by 13-year-old Abbey McCay, and a musical performance by JUNO award-winning Canadian Aboriginal singer Susan Aglukark.
