Event

The pre-eminent all-Canadian sporting event will feature approximately 200 skaters in the men, women, pair, ice dance, and synchronized skating disciplines, competing at the senior and junior levels.

Athletes will vie for spots on the National Team and for a selection on the teams that will represent Canada at the ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships® 2023, the ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships® 2023, the ISU World Figure Skating Championships® 2023, the ISU World Synchronized Skating Championships® 2023, and the ISU World Junior Synchronized Skating Championships® 2023.

All competition events and practices for the 2023 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships will be held at Tribute Communities Centre in Oshawa, Ontario, from January 9-15, 2023.

The doors open each day 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the first practice. Keep checking the Skate Canada website at www.skatecanada.ca for the most up-to-date schedule.
