Sixteen different sports and 21 different venues will be used, spread all over the province, but most will be in Halifax, with the city bracing for a huge boost in tourism, over the next week.

The following roads will be closed Sunday, Sunday for the Opening Ceremonies:

  • Duke Street, from Argyle Street to Brunswick Street
