The Hockey Canada Foundation (HCF) was founded in 2000, and is a registered non-profit that operates hand-in-hand with Hockey Canada to fulfill its mission. The HCF provides secure, sustainable, long-term funding to support the future development of the game through the delivery of a wide range of programs by Hockey Canada.
The Foundation relies on donations to establish and grow a selection of endowment and general purpose funds to help ensure Canada remains at the forefront of developing and promoting amateur hockey. Canadians who want to give back to the game can do so knowing their gift will have an impact for generations to come.
The Hockey Canada Foundation understands the dynamic role that hockey plays in teaching important life lessons and instilling the values that make Canadians truly unique. Emerging trends and challenges affect participation in our national winter sport today. Canada is becoming increasingly diverse and many new Canadians are not naturally drawn to the game. As the world becomes driven by digital technologies, Canadians of all ages spend too much time sitting in front of screens – compromising both their health and their social skills.
The Hockey Canada Foundation knows how to address these challenges. The Foundation has developed a bold plan for the future to ensure hockey remains a strong and vital element of Canadian culture.
Our plan begins with a vision of the critical role that hockey plays in Canadian society and establishes the HCF as the steward of the game, responsible for its continued vitality and growth.
Uniting Canadians through hockey – one person, one community, one country.
The Hockey Canada Foundation preserves, nurtures and strengthens the bond between Canadians and hockey.
Our Strategic Priorities:
To unite all Canadians and achieve our mission, the Hockey Canada Foundation is committed to three strategic priorities:
Enable: Removing barriers to the game.
Educate: Providing resources and tools to better equip kids, parents, and coaches.
