2023 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships
Skate Canada is pleased to announce that Oshawa, Ontario, will host the 2023 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships. The week-long championships will be held at the Tribute Communities Centre, from January 9-15, 2023. The championships will feature the best Canadian figure skaters in men, women, pairs, ice dance, and synchronized skating disciplines, competing in two levels: junior and senior.
For the first time, the Canadian Tire National Skating Championships will also include the nation’s best junior and senior synchronized skating teams as they compete for the national title. The synchronized skating teams previously competed at the Skate Canada Synchronized Skating Championships. To highlight all the skating disciplines in the same arena, Canada's top synchro teams will join their fellow skating colleagues in Oshawa to vie for national titles.
“Skate Canada is very excited to be heading to Oshawa for the 2023 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships,” said Debra Armstrong, Chief Executive Officer, Skate Canada. “The national championships have a new meaning this year as we welcome our best synchronized skating teams to the event. Fans will truly get to see the best Canada has to offer in our five disciplines. We look forward to working with our partners in Oshawa and Durham Region to host this special event.”
“We are thrilled to welcome the 2023 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships to the City of Oshawa,” said Dan Carter, Mayor of Oshawa. “The Tribute Communities Centre in downtown Oshawa is a world-class entertainment venue and an ideal choice for this national competition. We are pleased to host this major event and great economic driver for our city. Our community looks forward to welcoming the highest level of competitive skating in Canada.”
Athletes vie for spots on the Skate Canada National Team and the Canadian teams that will compete at the ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships® 2023, the ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships® 2023, the ISU World Figure Skating Championships® 2023, the ISU World Synchronized Skating Championships®2023, and the ISU World Junior Synchronized Skating Championships® 2023.
“Durham Region is pleased to have attracted this historic Skate Canada national event after successfully hosting their 2018 Synchronized Skating Championships,” said John Henry, Regional Chair and Chief Executive Officer for The Regional Municipality of Durham. “Sport tourism is an important contributor to our local economy. Durham Region is a premier sport event destination, home to some of the GTA’s best and busiest sport complexes and venues. I’m confident our award-winning Sport Durham team, along with our capable community partners and volunteers will help to make this event memorable for all participants.”
This will be the second time Oshawa has hosted the Canadian Tire National Skating Championships, having last hosted in 1952. Most recently, in 2018, Oshawa and Durham Region hosted the Skate Canada Synchronized Skating Championships.
