The Ontario Government is giving the City of Windsor $2.5 million over the next two years to help cover the costs of hosting the FINA World Swimming Championships from December 7th to 11th, 2016.

The announcement was made as part of the provincial budget.

The short-course international swimming event is expected to draw approximately 2,500 visitors, including more than 700 athletes from around the world, and will showcase the region’s vitality, diversity and hospitality.

This will be the first time this event has been held in Canada, and the first time since 2004 that it has been held in North America.
