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.
