The Hockey Canada Foundation Assist Fund provides subsidies to assist with hockey registration fees for Canadian youth.
More than $350,000 in funding for BIPOC youth provided by Scotiabank.
Our new Hockey Canada Foundation Assist Fund works daily to make hockey more by enabling Canadian youth to experience the power of play through Canada's game.
COVID-19 has challenged so many Canadians’ financial stability. The need for support to keep kids in hockey is real. Meet a few of the amazing young people the Hockey Canada Foundation Assist Fund has had the honour of supporting.

“‘Is your baby Canadian? Because she's really watching that hockey game!’ Those were the surprising words I was told at a hotel breakfast when Everly was three months old. She was born with hockey in her blood, something her single mom knew nothing about!” – Everly’s momView Everly's full story
Age 11, Brantford Church (Ontario Hockey Federation)
“I really love hockey and I wish with all my heart to improve and demonstrate to people that if you want, you can … even though you learned late.” – JoseView Jose's full story
Age 9, Association Sportive Monteuil Laval (Hockey Quebec)

Age 11, Southern Shore Minor Hockey Association (Hockey Newfoundland and Labrador)
“When Silas was born, he had a congenital club foot and we were told he may never be able to play sports or even run or walk. He has made leaps and bounds in the sport and in his little lifetime. He is now so proud to say he is a hockey player.” – Silas’ momView Silas' full story
