Ottawa, ON: Skate Canada is pleased to announce that Ottawa, Ont., will host the 2022 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships. The week-long championships held at TD Place from January 6-13, 2022 will feature approximately 250 of the best Canadian figure skaters in the men, women, pairs and ice dance disciplines, competing in three levels: senior, junior, and novice.

“Skate Canada is thrilled to be heading back to beautiful city of Ottawa for the 2022 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships,” said Debra Armstrong, CEO, Skate Canada. “After a challenging competitive season in 2020-21, we are looking forward to a brighter and prosperous season. The national championships will showcase the nation’s top figure skaters and we look forward to working with our partners in Ottawa to host an unforgettable event.”

"As Mayor of Ottawa, I am thrilled that Skate Canada has chosen to host the 2022 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships in the nation's capital,” said Jim Watson, Mayor of Ottawa. “TD Place at beautiful Lansdowne Park will be an excellent venue to showcase the talent of the world's best figure skaters for residents and visitors alike."

The championships are part of the qualification criteria that will aid in selecting the Canadian team that will compete at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing, China later next year.

The pre-eminent all-Canadian competition will begin with the senior event on Thursday, January 6, and the novice event will begin on Monday, January 10. Athletes vie for spots on the Skate Canada National Team and the Canadian teams that will compete at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games, 2022 Four Continents Figure Skating Championships, the 2022 ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships and the 2022 ISU World Figure Skating Championships.

“We look forward to welcoming Canada’s top skaters to Ottawa for the 2022 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships. Skating plays a big role in our community and in the life of many Ottawans and we are excited for the opportunity to host the best of the best in national skating,” says Michael Crockatt, President and CEO, Ottawa Tourism. “Large scale sporting events like the Canadian Tire National Skating Championships are not only important to boosting our local economy, but also give Ottawa the opportunity to emerge from these unprecedented times with enhanced exposure on the national stage.”

“We are proud to be hosting the 2022 Canadian Tire National Skate Championships here at The Arena at TD Place,” said Mark Goudie, CEO of the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group. “After a long, brutal period of time without the being able to share the emotions that come with live sports, getting these marquee events back on the calendar gives us all a sense of optimism and excitement. Lansdowne will also be the perfect place for us all to celebrate world class skating and time back together again.”

Ottawa is no stranger to hosting the Canadian Tire National Skating Championships, as 2022 will be its 12th time hosting the flagship event. Previously, Ottawa has hosted the event in 1922, 1940, 1949, 1953, 1958, 1987, 1996, 1999, 2006, 2014, and 2017.

Event ticket information for the 2022 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships will be released in the spring.

Might I ask, why are they called the TIRE National Championships? Is it sponsored by a car company or something? (sorry, I'm a relatively new fan and I've never watched Canadian Nationals before)

It is confusing.

I'm not Canadian, but I believe "Canadian Tire" is the name of store, where they do sell tires.:laugh: And other things.

Canadian Tire is the sponsor; they’re a Walmart/Home Depot hybrid.

Canadian Tire has lots of housewares and hardware and things like Christmas decorations, but no (or very little) clothing and no food, except for a few snacks. And tires, and car service. If you import a car to Canada or from one province to another, you'll need to have it inspected at an authorized location; Canadian Tire does that.

One nice thing about Canadian Tire is that they have a website showing all their merchandise (and only their own merchandise; they are not a faux-Amazon). You can read reviews and check inventory at your local store. It was great during the pandemic since if you needed something you could look it up online, check the reviews, check inventory, make your choice, and go to the store armed with the description of the item and THE AISLE NUMBER where it could be found.

They also have a liberal return policy, kind of like Wal-Mart. Unfortunately their quality is Wal-Mart-esque as well.

They are affectionately (?) known as "Crappy Tire". In fact, if I google "Crappy Tire", Canadian Tire is the first hit shown!

Oh, I shop there as well, and have bought some good stuff there. If they sell you Cuisinart pans, they are regular Cuisinart pans, not something made especially for them (to lower standards) by Cuisinart. The latter can be true of WalMart and some Amazon vendors.
