Show your love for skating on December 10th!
Hey Canada! On Sunday, December 10, 2017, let’s skate from coast to coast to coast! We are at home on the ice so let’s lace up together to enjoy our favourite winter activity and to celebrate the completion of the Canada 150 year.
Canadian Heritage invites communities across the country to join together in a nationwide skating party!
Participate in a Canada 150 Skating Day event by attending one of the events being held across the country in various cities or plan a Canada 150 Skating Day event in your club or community.

To promote the diversity, inclusion and healthy lifestyle that skating represents, an integral piece of the Canada 150 Skating Day legacy will be the introduction of community skate banks, allowing children without equipment the opportunity to take part – not only on December 10th, but for years to come. These skate banks will exist in communities right across the nation, providing helmets and skates to children who may not otherwise have the opportunity to learn to skate.
This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.
