With the release of the new dates for the 2021 IIHF Women’s World Championship in Calgary, Alta., Hockey Canada is committed to continued communication with the International Ice Hockey Federation, Province of Alberta and local health authorities to ensure the event can be hosted in a safe environment.
Fans wishing to receive ticket information can sign up for the WWC Fan List here.
The 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship will face off in Edmonton without hockey fans in attendance, while the 2022 tournament will be played in Edmonton and Red Deer.
Despite a strong desire to work with three great communities to host the top players at various levels across the country this season, the health and safety of all participants and the communities at large continues to be of the utmost importance to Hockey Canada. The ongoing pandemic, in addition to the vaccination status of some international teams, has left us with no other option. We believe the decision to cancel these fall events is the safest decision given the ongoing uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic at a local level, as well as the uncertainty around countries and regions being able to safely compete.
Hockey Canada is grateful for the continued support of local host committees and event partners, including B.C. Hockey, Hockey Eastern Ontario, Hockey Nova Scotia and the Canadian Junior Hockey League, as well as the communities of Bridgewater, N.S., Cornwall, Ont., and Dawson Creek, B.C., and all local and provincial funding partners. Our organization is appreciative of the commitment and support of all stakeholders to host these events and we look forward to showcasing our national events and all participants to fans next year.”
