Partnerships

Our Partners See Our Potential…

At Skate Canada, we believe that Partnerships are about value creation. They are about partners bringing together different assets and strategically aligning them in a manner that creates new value and a win-win proposition for both parties.

On the ice and in our communities, Skate Canada is ready to reward the nation’s support!
