Canada Paralympic House set to open in Rio at Sheraton Barra hotel


The Canadian Paralympic Committee is proud to announce the location of Canada Paralympic House for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. We will be taking over the beautiful Sheraton Barra Rio de Janeiro Hotel for the duration of the Paralympic Games, which will be held Sept. 7 to 18, 2016.

Located on the beach in the Barra de Tijuca region, Canada Paralympic House will be a home away from home for Canadian Paralympic family members. It is our hope that all Canadian families and friends will join us as we create a Canadian out-of-Village hub for all Team Canada-related activities and the primary meeting place for Canadians in Rio.

Services at Canada Paralympic House will include ticket pick up, a lounge area with access to the Canadian broadcast feed, concierge service, sponsor sampling, special events and more. Canada Paralympic House will open on September 7 and welcome visitors until September 18.

Access to Canada Paralympic House is limited to registered friends and families of Team Canada athletes. If you haven’t already done so, please click here to register. We look forward to welcoming you in Rio. Go Canada go!
