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.

Thank you to everyone who attended the AA tryouts. Coaches are working diligently to respond to all families within the next 24hrs as COVID restrictions limited our abilities to meet after the final session.

Congratulations to those who were successful in making a team. The TMHA registration portal (same place you registered for tryouts) remains open for anyone who has not yet registered (player fee) for the season. You can also pay your performance bond online as well.
