Ottawa Restores Hockey Canada’s Funding

The federal government in Ottawa has announced that it will restore funding to Hockey Canada after the national governing body met three conditions to make the sport safer and more transparent.

Hockey Canada received $7.7 million from Sport Canada in 2022 but had its funding frozen when it came under scrutiny over its handling of sexual assault allegations.

The hockey governing body also lost many of its corporate sponsors due to a sexual assault scandal involving members of Canada's 2018 world junior team, and revelations that court settlements were paid for using player registration fees.

The conditions needed to restore funding included becoming a full signatory to “Abuse-Free Sport,” a commitment to more frequently update the government on changes to a toxic culture, and implementation of recommendations from an independent governance review.

Hockey Canada overhauled its board of directors last December, appointing a new board chair and eight new directors.
