Effective October 25 at 12:01 a.m., Ontario will lift capacity limits in the vast majority of settings where proof of vaccination is required. Limits will also be lifted in certain outdoor settings.
Continued improvements to public health and health care indicators, including ongoing stability in the province’s hospitals, have guided this cautious and gradual approach.
Ontario will also allow other settings to lift capacity limits if they begin requiring proof of vaccination. This will not apply to key services such as medical care, food from grocery stores, medical supplies, and the like.

The $1 Million Hockey Canada Foundation Assist Fund is Back!

In its ongoing commitment to ensure access to hockey for young Canadians, the Hockey Canada Foundation Assist Fund is back for the 2021-22 season. The relaunch of the program follows a tremendous year in 2020-21, when more than 1,000 Canadian families received an assist.

The Hockey Canada Foundation Assist Fund is once again making $1 million available to help Canadians experiencing financial challenges as a result of COVID-19. It will provide up to $500 per player in registration fee subsidies to approved applicants who are registered with a Hockey Canada-sanctioned association.

The goal: Help young Canadians get back on the ice and enjoying the game they love in their communities.

If you or someone you know could use an assist with registration fees, please visit HockeyCanada.ca/AssistFund for more information, or to apply.

If you have any questions, please look at our FAQs or contact assistfund@hockeycanada.ca.

Thank you for your support. Because when it comes to play, we can all use an assist.
