CBC/Radio-Canada is the official broadcaster of the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games in Toronto, and beginning with tonight's opening ceremony at 7 p.m. ET, the network will broadcast nearly 750 hours of coverage over the course of the Games on TV, online and mobile platforms.

CBC's Scott Russell and Peter Mansbridge will host the opening ceremony, with Sonali Karnick reporting from ground level of the Rogers Centre, to be known throughout the Games as the Pan Am Dome.

In addition to what is expected to be an extraordinary original production from Quebec's own Cirque du Soleil, the ceremony will include the Parade of Nations, as the 41 competing countries make their way into the stadium, as well as the lighting of the Pan Am cauldron.

Canoer and Olympic bronze medallist Mark Oldershaw will be the flag-bearer for Canada.

Coverage on CBC-TV will begin at 7 p.m. ET (8 p.m. AT/8:30 p.m. NT/7 p.m. local west of Ontario) with an hour-long pre-show followed by the opening ceremony at 8 p.m. ET (9 p.m. AT/9:30 p.m. NT/8 p.m. local west of Ontario). Live streaming coverage will also be available online at cbc.ca/panam and through the CBC Sports App beginning at 7 p.m. ET (4 p.m. PT).

Coverage of both the pre-show and the opening ceremony will be available through the CBC SportsApp. The app, presented by CIBC, also includes the latest live and on-demand video, instant results, medal standings and news.
