Welcoming the World to the 2010 Winter Games

Welcome to the official destination planning site for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games!

The eyes of the world will be on British Columbia’s natural beauty, spectacular cities and culturally diverse people when Vancouver and Whistler host the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games. This site provides information on the Olympic Host Cities: Vancouver, Whistler and Richmond, as well as key travel planning information for the communities nearby.

For spectators and people visiting during the Games, up-to-date information on accommodation availability, transportation and Olympic Arts Festivals’ events will also appear here as the details become available.

Canada’s celebration of the Olympic values will be a distinctive reflection of the Canadian love of sport, commitment to freedom and social equity, and our welcoming and multicultural society. The rich culture of Canada’s Indigenous peoples will be a key element as the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games works with the Four Host Nations to achieve unprecedented Aboriginal participation in the Games.
