VANCOUVER WILL HOST THE 4TH WORLD DEAF ICE HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIP
September 22, 2017 – The Canadian Deaf Sports Association (CDSA) was selected by the International Committee of Sports for the Deaf (ICSD) to organize and host the 4th World Deaf Ice Hockey Championship to be held from April 7 to 17, 2021.
Vancouver will be the host city for the event. The West Coast city is no stranger to international events as the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games were held in this city.
“In collaboration with the Vancouver Organization Committee, CDSA will support the organisation of the event to ensure a total success. It also aligns with one of CDSA’ Strategic Directions from the Strategic Plan 2017-2022: Maximize awareness of CDSA at the national and international levels when hosting sport events in Canada (glowing),” said Alain Turpin, CDSA Executive Director.
The CDSA is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development of high performance Deaf and hard of hearing athletes. Through direct financial support CDSA helps athletes participate in international sport events sanctioned by the International Committee of Sports for the Deaf, and the Pan American Sports Committee for the Deaf.
