Skate Canada Statement on Anti-Racism
Skate Canada supports a safe, open, and inclusive environment for everyone. As protests in the United States and here at home in Canada have shone a spotlight on racial injustice, we stand with the Black community. We are committed to anti-racism and leading by example within the sporting community to bring change. We recognize that we need to also self-reflect on our shortcomings and further educate ourselves to take decisive action.
We commend our skating family for expressing themselves and using their platform to be a voice for equality. We know the power of sport and the positive impact that skating brings Canadians and we know we need to do better.
Skate Canada is committed to working with all individuals and supporting educational resources to improve the state of our society and sport, so truly everyone can embrace the joy of skating.
