OTTAWA, ON: In Canada, skating is part of who we are and preserving Canada’s skating legacy and future is critical to Skate Canada’s vision of Inspiring All Canadians to Embrace the Joy of Skating. The Skate Canada Fund is a simple way for Canadians to invest in skating across Canada.

The Skate Canada Fund will allow donors to direct their donation to one of five targeted areas: Skate For Life Skater Fund , Skate To Win Athlete Fund, Coach Fund, Officials Fund and the  Leadership Fund which features the David Dore Mentorship Fund.

“We are so excited to launch the Skate Canada Fund. Canadians love skating and now they have a way to help continue the growth of skating in Canada. The ability to be able to direct your donation to one of our five key pillars will allow donors to have a direct impact on the sport,” said Dan Thompson, Chief Executive Director, Skate Canada. “Supporting the Skate Canada Fund is an investment in skating’s future and with help from our partners and everyday Canadians the Skate Canada Fund can ensure the success of Canadian skating for years to come.”

Your donation will generate an immediate impact on new and ongoing programming, education, opportunities, grants and much more that will benefit the entire Canadian skating landscape. From a child’s first CanSkate badge to a high performance athlete reaching their dreams of standing on the podium and everything in-between, the Skate Canada Fund is dedicated to securing the future of skating in Canada for generations to come.
