This Thanksgiving weekend, Canadians from the Atlantic provinces, northern territories, and the Pacific coast – along with points everywhere in between – are celebrating the rich history and future of women in Canada’s game as part of the fifth annual World Girls’ Hockey Weekend. A variety of local female hockey events will take place across the country throughout the weekend.

“World Girls’ Hockey Weekend really is for everyone – we want current and former players, coaches, and officials who have helped grow women’s hockey to feel celebrated, but we also want to use it to introduce the game to new girls of all ages so they can experience the fun, the comradery, and the great lessons and life skills you develop from playing this great game,” said Mandi Duhamel, manager of female development, Hockey Canada. “This is a global initiative, but Canada has embraced it and made it our own to create local community celebrations to reach as many people as we can.”
