Date: Oct, 11, 2022 12:00 PM EDT
CAMBRIDGE, ON (October 7, 2022) – The Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) recognizes the changes made by Hockey Canada and believes this is a good first step in addressing the challenges ahead. This is an incredibly important juncture in our game’s history, and it cannot be understated that trust needs to be rebuilt with Canadians – on and off the ice.
Day in and day out, the OHF will continue to work with our Members (Alliance, GTHL, NOHA, OHA, OHL, OMHA and OWHA) to ensure all stakeholders (leagues, associations, teams, coaches, officials and volunteers) have the tools, support and insurance needed, so players across the OHF continue to have a safe, fun and quality experience on the ice. To ensure a seamless transition of leadership, the OHF operations will collaborate with the newly adjusted interim Management Committee at Hockey Canada over the coming months.
We encourage anyone who believes they have the skill set to be a Hockey Canada Director to get in contact with the Hockey Canada Nominations Committee (Hockey Canada Board of Directors Duties Nomination Form). Through a diversity of skill and people, opinions and approaches, we collectively being the OHF, our Members, leagues, associations, teams, coaches, officials, volunteers, players, parents and fans can create the change we want to see in our game.
