Dear members and registrants,

Registration for the 2021 Skate Canada Ice Summit is now open. Join community leaders from across the country and meet online for this interactive, exciting conference. Registration will include all pre-conference and conference activities, including Skate Canada’s Annual General Meeting.

“This past year has been difficult for all due to the pandemic,” said Debra Armstrong, CEO, Skate Canada. “We are thrilled to be able to host our annual conference virtually, allowing our skating community to still connect and come together in one place to support the continued development from the grassroots level to the world stage. Though we will not be able to be together in person this year, the goal of continuing to inspire Canadians to embrace the joy of skating will unite us all.”

The theme of this year’s event is: Change Connecting Community. The 2021 Ice Summit package offers an interactive and engaging virtual environment featuring comprehensive education and discussion with leading experts. We will also be honouring members of our skating community who have played an integral role during the global pandemic.

This year’s conference kicks off on May 15-16 for a pre-conference virtual skating seminar hosted by world and Olympic champion, Meagan Duhamel. May 18-20 will also feature pre-conference sessions, including a leadership development session with three-time Grey Cup Champion, Henry Burris.
