Canada, which is represented by the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC), will compete at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico from October 14 to 30, 2011. The Canadian team will be made up of 492 athletes (256 men and 236 women), the most ever for a non-home Games. On the team all ten provinces and the Northwest Territories are represented. Some sports such as wrestling will be sending their strongest team, however sports which offer the most medals (swimming and athletics) will be sending for the most part a developmental team. Table Tennis player Anqi Luo (15 years old) will be Canadas youngest athlete at the Games while Equestrian athlete Ian Millar (64 years old) will be Canadas eldest athlete competing in Guadalajara. Canada will compete in 35 out of the 36 sports on the program (the exception being basque pelota). On October 4, 2011 womens football star Christine Sinclair was selected to carry the flag during the opening ceremony. The chef de mission is Jacques Cardyn and the assistant chef de mission is Curt Harnett.
