OTTAWA - The Toronto Raptors are headed to Canada's capital for training camp.

The Raptors will hold their camp at Carleton University in Ottawa, Sept. 30 to Oct. 4, the team announced Friday.

"We are very excited to hold training camp in our nation's capital, symbolizing our identity as Canada's team," Raptors president and GM Bryan Colangelo said in a release. "Carleton University offers us state of the art facilities and a great working relationship with a highly successful basketball program."

The Raptors travelled overseas as part of NBA Europe Live last year, holding their camp in Rome and Madrid.

The Raptors will conduct two-a-day practices at the Ravens' Nest Gymnasium at Carleton, and will wrap up camp with an intrasquad game on Oct. 4.

The Raptors open the 2008 pre-season Oct. 7 at Cleveland and return home to play host to the New York Knicks the following evening.

The club's 2008-09 regular-season opener is Oct. 29 at Philadelphia. The home opener is set for Oct. 31 versus the Golden State Warriors.
