Strategic Plan


On behalf of the Speed Skating Canada (SSC) Board of Directors and Staff, it is with great pleasure that we present to our 2018-2023 Strategic Plan. This plan will not only provide SSC with its guiding direction over the next five years but should be viewed as a collective national agenda for all of our stakeholders. We must work together to build the sport of speed skating in Canada.


This ambitious Strategic Plan is intended to take our organization to the next level and has been guided by the voices of our Provincial and Territorial Sport Organizations (PTSOs), clubs, athletes, working groups and partners in sport, in consultation with subject matter experts.

The plan captures the essence of who we are and all we aspire to be – leaders in sport and organizational excellence. It describes our desired outcomes, sets forth strategies to achieve them and outlines our shared roles and responsibilities. We are committed to creating the SSC of tomorrow, firmly establishing our sport and our brand in the minds of Canadians and continuing to provide great value for our partners.

In defining our future, we must focus on servicing the needs of our members and stakeholders. We need to place our participants and athletes where they belong – at the heart of everything we do. As we look ahead, we must also remember where we came from, maintaining the legacy of our past successes while adapting to new challenges and opportunities.

This plan is everybody’s plan. We all play integral roles in speed skating’s relentless pursuit of excellence. Together we will ensure that our sport continues to grow and thrive nationwide. 

Join us as we build an exciting future for speed skating in Canada.
