A spokesperson for the Canadian Soccer Association confirmed that younger players would make up the Canadian women's side.
Six teams in the women's draw participated in the World Cup which finished six days prior to the start of the Pan Am tournament.
However, since 1990, they have missed the playoffs on eleven occasions and have won just one Grey Cup in 1999 (and have the longest Grey Cup drought of the current East Division teams).
Their lowest moment came when they lost a Canadian Football League record 17 games in one season with just one win during their 2003 season.
Most Portuguese Canadians live in Ontario - 282,865 (69%), followed by Quebec 57,445 (14%) and British Columbia 34,660 (8%).
They are one of six teams in the modern era to win the Grey Cup at home and were the first to accomplish this when they did it in 1972.
Association football competitions at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto were held from July 11 to 26 at Tim Hortons Field (renamed Hamilton Pan Am Soccer Stadium due to sponsorship rules) in Hamilton.
There was some concern that, as the event is within close proximity to the women's World Cup and the men's Gold Cup that full-strength teams would not be fielded, particularly in the women's event which is not age-restricted, which in turn would affect quality of play.
The show's intimate aura was praised among critics, many commending Jackson's showmanship in contrast to her more recent contemporaries.
The majority of the tour had completely sold out, notably two shows in Sydney, Australia, which sold out within fifteen minutes, in addition to Los Angeles, which sold in under ten minutes, and three shows in London.
