Effective Friday, March 13:
all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activity for the 2019-20 season is cancelled.

The Branch Executive Directors and Presidents were advised tonight that as a result of the impact of COVID-19 and its spread across the country and around the world, Hockey Canada's Board of Directors has voted to cancel all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activity for the duration of the 2019-20 season effective Friday, March 13.

This decision impacts all of Minor, Junior and Senior hockey, Hockey Canada Accredited Schools and University Hockey - for further clarity, Provincial and Atlantic Championships at every level will not be held. High Performance activities are also cancelled at this time.

This decision is unprecedented, but it does not get made lightly - this decision was made in clear focus for the safety of the members across the country.

We recognize that there are going to be many questions and a lot of work arising out of this decision; however, we ask for your patience as we work diligently in organizing and resolving those questions. We will continue working with Hockey Canada and medical experts in monitoring the situation and continuing to provide you information where necessary.

If you have any pressing questions or concerns at this time, please contact our office.

NRMHA Supportive Of Tyne Valley's Bid For Kraft Hockeyville
North River Minor Hockey Association logo

North River Minor Hockey Association gives their full support in building a new arena through the nation-wide contest.

Cornwall, PE: North River Minor Hockey Association was saddened to hear about the devastating fire in December where Tyne Valley's community sports centre was declared a total loss. The loss is more than just an ice surface, but a place where community can come together and share memories.

As a result, NRMHA is fully supportive of Tyne Valley's bid for Kraft Hockeyville, in efforts of building a new rink with the potential prize money. The association is willing to help Tyne Valley's efforts in any way possible and welcome the invitation to assist.

President of NRMHA, Caley MacDonald, said: "We understand the importance of local sports centres and their impact on a community. North River minor hockey is glad to provide support in any means necessary to ensure Tyne Valley is successful with their quest for Kraft Hockeyville."

When a community on Prince Edward Island is in need, other communities must step up to help where they can. It is the Island way of doing things and NRMHA understands that.

Tyne Valley has several ways that you can support, including using the hashtag #Rally4TheValley. There is a benefit hockey game being played on February 9th at 4:00PM which includes former NHLer Ray Bourque, being held at the Credit Union Place in Summerside. Additionally, there is an online auction currently ongoing raising funds for the new rink. It can be found at rally4thevalleyauction.ca.

For further information, please contact NRMHA Vice-President Sam MacPhail at .
