Skate Canada COVID-19 Response

Dear Members and Registrants,

In these uncertain times for our organization, our communities and our world, we want to assure our Skate Canada family that we are all in this together. 

This is an unprecedented time for all of us and there is no playbook to refer to. We need to follow the lead of our government officials and health care authorities and do our part to overcome this pandemic together.

We know our community is eager to get back on the ice and resume skating activities. Several provincial governments have released frameworks for reopening services and lifting restrictions on physical/social distancing. As a result, effective immediately, we have lifted the suspension of Skate Canada activities, with limitations.

For skating to resume the below restriction must be adhered to:

  • Skate Canada sections, clubs and skating schools can resume only if permitted by the jurisdiction they are located in. This means that all members and registrants must follow the precautions outlined by their provincial and municipal governments and their local venue operators. 

As the COVID-19 response varies from location to location, there is no standard approach that applies to all clubs and schools. However, Skate Canada has developed Return to Skating Guidelines. The guidelines follow recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Canada to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and ensure all participants feel safe while participating in skating activities.

Since each province’s reopening plan differs, it is the responsibility of the section, club, skating school and coach to abide by the various requirements outlined by their governments. The timeline for reopening will vary depending on your jurisdiction, so not all clubs and skating schools will be able to resume collectively.

It is imperative that all clubs, skating schools and coaches reach out to their Section to inquire about provincial regulations and how skating is affected in your area.  Skate Canada and all Sections are working together to find the way forward and will regroup regularly to ensure inquiries are addressed.

As information is released and further best practices for facilitating skating are developed, we will continue to update the community. As a reminder, due to the fluidity of COVID-19, Skate Canada has created a dedicated webpage as a primary resource for our members and registrants.

Thank you for taking the necessary precautions and doing what you can to limit the spread of COVID-19. By working together and going the extra mile, as an organization and as neighbours, we can make a difference.
