Sports Minister Bal Gosal says the games offer Canadian athletes a "tremendous opportunity" to hone their skills on home turf.
All 15 sports at the Parapan Am Games are qualifiers for the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Wheelchair basketball player David Eng says his entire team is moving to Toronto to train together in the lead-up to the games.
In celebration of the countdown, organizers launched a video dubbed "Are you ready?" showcasing para-athletes and their intensive training rituals.
Next year's competition will mark the first time the Parapan Am Games will be held in Canada.
