Hockey Canada has cancelled the 2020 National Women’s Under-18 Championship set for Dawson Creek this fall.
The tournament was to run Nov. 2 to 8, and Hockey Canada says it's planning for its return to the city in 2021.
“At various rates, provinces from coast-to-coast-to-coast have started moving ahead with their phased re-opening, but as it has been since the season was cancelled, Hockey Canada’s priority remains the health and safety of all participants and the general public,” CEO Tom Renney and President Scott Smith said in a joint statement on Thursday.
“We believe the decision to cancel these three events is the safest decision given the ongoing uncertainty of the pandemic at the local level, as well as the international implications associated with these events.”
