TORONTO, ONT. — Based on the current public health restrictions instituted by the Ontario Provincial Government within Durham Region, and Halton Region, Canlan Ice Sports has announced that the remainder of the ASHL Fall ’20 season — originally slated to run from September to the end of December — has been cancelled at our Oakville and Oshawa locations.
- Public Health Measures: Ontario updating COVID-19 response framework
Restrictions on sports gameplay were initially levied in Halton after the region was moved to the Province’s red-control zone on November 16th, which forced the initial pause in the Fall ’20 season. On November 23rd, these restrictions were extended to Durham Region, which subsequently required a stoppage in ASHL gameplay in Oshawa.
Canlan Ice Sports’ President and CEO, Joey St-Aubin indicated that the decision to cancel the remainder of the Fall ’20 season was largely based on these restrictions, and was not taken lightly.
“As we continue to closely monitor the public health restrictions across the Province, and in Durham and Halton, we have determined that the resumption of the Fall ’20 season is unfortunately no longer viable. The combination of current circumstances in addition to limited number of weeks remaining in the calendar year have required for us to come to this difficult decision.
We sincerely hope that the steps taken by the Provincial Government to mitigate the spread of the virus will result in a reduction of cases and hospitalizations as we transition through December. We’ve worked hard to create a safe playing environment for our players at Canlan Ice Sports and look forward to focusing our attention to welcoming players back for the Winter ’21 season when gameplay is permitted,” St-Aubin said.
We know these are tough times, and we appreciate your patience as we navigate these challenges together. Please refer below for additional information on team credits, and frequently asked questions …and we’ll look forward to seeing you on the ice soon enough. ✌

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a guaranteed game?
Each ASHL division had a preset number of guaranteed games scheduled during the Fall ’20 season.
How is the credit determined?
Each team’s credit is determined by calculating the dollar value of each game based on their team fee, and subsequently multiplying that by the number of remaining guaranteed games a team has yet to play. In the event the team still has an outstanding balance on their team fee, that balance will be deducted from any credit amount.
How can we use our credit?
Team credits reside with the Team Rep, with the credit amount being applied towards the team’s fee. Team reps will be responsible for notifying their League Manager when they’d like to have their credit applied. Players are encouraged to speak with their team reps regarding the status of their team’s credit.
e.g. A team with a $500.00 credit can apply that against the team fee for the Winter ’21 season and receive $500.00 off the price.
I played on an Individual Team, how does that impact my credit?
Participants on an individual team — a team where players played the individual registration fee instead of a team fee — will receive an individual credit based on the guaranteed number of games they had remaining.
