Travel Permits

Hockey Canada only sanctions events in which all participants are registered members of Hockey Canada or USA Hockey. When traveling to a tournament or exhibition game outside of Manitoba you may need to verify your registration with the branch and a travel permit serves as the verification that your team and its members are registered with Hockey Manitoba and is proof of the insurance provided to you as a member team.

Why you need a Travel Permit

All individuals properly registered with Hockey Manitoba are covered by the Hockey Canada Insurance Program. Hockey Canada Insurance is secondary in nature and therefore primary coverage needs to be exhausted before you can apply. If you are playing in Canada without primary coverage you can apply directly to Hockey Canada. When playing outside the country you are required to have primary coverage in order to qualify for the Hockey Canada coverage. Please ensure all individuals traveling with your team have some sort of travel health insurance if you are leaving the country.

When you need a Travel Permit

Hockey Manitoba requires that you obtain a travel permit any time you travel outside the province for exhibition games or tournaments. If you are traveling within Manitoba you do not require a Hockey Manitoba travel permit however the Winnipeg and Norman regions require their teams to have approval any time they travel outside of their region.

If your team engages in league play against a team from another branch (ie: Saskatchewan) then you do not require a permit to attend regularly scheduled league games. However if you are attending a tournament hosted by one of those teams you do require one.

If your team will be traveling overseas please contact Peter Woods
