HOCKEY CANADA STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
Submitted By Angel Barbisan on Thu 03 12, 20
CALGARY, Alta. – The following is a statement on behalf of Hockey Canada from Tom Renney, chief executive officer, and Scott Smith, president and chief operating officer, on the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  

“Without question, this an unprecedented period of difficulty for the sports world. The health and safety of all participants in sport, including players, coaches, staff, officials, fans, family, volunteers and the general public, is of the utmost importance to Hockey Canada.

After much consultation with the Hockey Canada membership, our chief medical officer and public health officials, the Hockey Canada Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities, including our national championships, until further notice, effective Friday, March 13, 2020.

 

We recognize the tremendous effort that has been put forth all year by individuals across the country as they participate in Canada’s game. Although it is difficult to process the hockey season ending abruptly, we feel this is the best course of action in order to do our part in keeping our country safe.” ”

 

As such, all Minor Hockey, Junior Hockey and Women's Hockey, including the OHF and Regional Championships and subsequent Hockey Canada sanctioned functions (year-end banquet, etc.) are suspended for the remainder of the season.

 

Further information will follow as it becomes available.  Thank you

SMHA Executive
