Update on the 2021-2022 Domestic Calendar 

As Nordiq Canada, along with the Divisional partners, prepare for a safe return to domestic racing coming out of the pandemic, we recognize teams are eagerly planning their 2021-2022 seasons. We wanted to take this opportunity to provide the community with an update on the status of our domestic competition calendar in an effort to help teams plan, with the understanding that all schedules are still subject to change as the pandemic continues to run its course.

To all officials

Nordiq Canada is in the process of working to transfer all officials training information into a new management system. We will be using the Coaching Association of Canada’s coaches Locker tool for managing and recording officials development and certification beginning September 2021. This is a secure platform ensuring confidentiality of information and accessible only to vetted coordinators and sport managers.

We ask that all officials visit their account by April 30th, 2021 at the latest, to ensure that information is up to date.

As we will be transferring personal information, please inform Nordiq Canada  if you do not wish to be included in the database (note however that this will effectively remove your candidacy from future officiating until such a time that your information is either transferred or that candidates retrain/recertify.)
