A not-for-profit organization, Skate Canada is the oldest and largest figure skating organization in the world and is recognized by the Government of Canada and the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) as the governing body for the sport of figure skating in Canada. However, we go far beyond figure skating. As the largest learn-to-skate teaching organization in Canada, we are dedicated to creating a nation of skaters both recreationally and competitively.
SkateCanada is the largest skating instruction organization in Canada. Each year, our learn-to-skate and skill-development programs help more than 130,000 skaters hone their on-ice skills. Those skills can be applied to figure, hockey, ringette or speed skating, or to enjoy gliding on a frozen pond.
