PowerHockey Canada and Play On! Canada partner to make hockey more accessible

Today, PowerHockey Canada and Play On! Canada are proud to announce their agreement to enter into a purpose-based partnership.

Given that we share similar missions and values, including community, sportsmanship, growing the game of hockey across Canada, and ensuring the game is accessible and inclusive for all; this partnership agreement was an obvious one.

After first collaborating and becoming increasingly familiar with each other’s respective organizations at the World of Hockey Summit in March of 2024, we have engaged in this partnership to demonstrate our support and commitment to our shared objective of growing the sport of hockey across Canada by creating inclusive and accessible opportunities to play. This shared objective includes the desire to collaborate with strategically aligned organizations.

With our respective areas of expertise, including creating programs for the disabled and other marginalized communities and establishing affordable programming across Canada, we are excited about the opportunities that this partnership will offer.

We look forward to working together in the coming weeks, months, and years.
