ABOUT HOCKEY EASTERN ONTARIO;
Hockey Eastern Ontario was established in 1920 as the “Ottawa and District Hockey Association”. This association has been the governing body for all amateur hockey in Eastern Ontario since its inception. At its Annual General Meeting in June 2013, a vote was passed to re-name the association to “Hockey Eastern Ontario” in order to better represent the area in which we govern and the participants who rely on the association for guidance and assistance in the day to day operations of their minor hockey associations. We are Eastern Ontario’s representation within Hockey Canada’s governance structure, we are one of 13 Branches across the country that administers our great game. We have over 32,000 members that are counting on Hockey Eastern Ontario to represent them at the National Level and ensure that Hockey stays fun and safe for everyone of all ages to continue playing.
