Housed by the Centre for Sport and Sustainability (CSS) via cIRcle, UBC’s Digital Repository, is the fourth and final report on the 2010 Winter Games, the OGI post-Games report. It is part of the Olympic Games Impact (OGI) Study Reports for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games and is now required of all Host Cities by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
The OGI study was developed by the IOC to introduce a standardized method of monitoring, measuring and reporting on the impact of hosting the Olympic Games. Beginning with the 2010 Winter Games, all Olympic organizing committees are contractually required to undertake the OGI study. The OGI study for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games has been overseen by the Canadian Olympic Committee following the post-Games wrap-up of the Vancouver Organizing Committee (VANOC).
