Who We Are
Inspiring all Canadians to Embrace the Joy of Skating.
Skate Canada will have a continuing legacy of champions and be recognized as a leader in the delivery of skating programs.
Skating instills a love of physical activity that contributes to the health and happiness of all who participate.
Goal-setting, discipline, perseverance, and lessons about competing with integrity, winning fairly and losing gracefully are skills that are valuable in all aspects of life.
Pursuing learning and reaching goals in the company of others creates a sense of community and a willingness to give back to one’s larger community.
The collaborating process between coach and athlete, instructor and skater, ice and movement is integral to innovative physical and aesthetic self-expression.
Excellence is being the best skater, competitor, coach, official, administrator or leader you can be.
