Statement from the 13 leaders of the provincial and territorial Hockey Canada branches

October 15, 2022
|

The 13 leaders of the provincial and territorial Hockey Canada Branches gathered for critical meetings on Saturday. Branch leaders embraced the recommendations of Justice Thomas Cromwell, C.C. in his Interim Governance Review Report and approved a number of Hockey Canada bylaw changes to support upcoming Hockey Canada Board elections on December 17, 2022.

Branch leaders felt that the frank and sometimes difficult conversations resulted in a productive day that puts us on a path to a better structure, greater transparency and restoring trust.

There was unanimous sentiment that this is a critical first step in support of the transformational change needed to get more and diverse voices to the table and the game in Canada to where it needs to be.

The full Cromwell Report, which will be received later this month, will serve as the blueprint for the 13 provincial and territorial Branches as well as the interim Hockey Canada Board.
