Veterans' Week


On November 11, 1918, the Armistice signed near Compi├Ęgne, France signified an end to the fighting of The Great War on the Western Front. 

Many members of the Canadian figure skating community selflessly dedicated their lives to their country during both World Wars. Canadian and North American Champions, judges, coaches, club presidents, pleasure skaters and close relatives of some of our country's brightest skating stars served in the military and performed important war work. 

In recognition of their service, Skate Guard presents as special Veterans' Week page highlighting these brave men and women's wartime contributions.
