Postponement of 2021 World Deaf Ice Hockey Championship to 2025

Canadian Deaf Sports Association and the World Deaf Ice Hockey Organising Committee decided to postpone World Deaf Hockey Championship from 2021 to 2025 due to COVID-19.

Many social and economic impacts had occurred across Canada. Recently many sporting and non-sporting events, particularly Deaf and Hearing events, had been either cancelled or postponed.

These issues caused some profound consideration for the WDIHC 2021 Organizing Committee. Unfortunately, the novel coronavirus is everywhere with no vaccine on the horizon.

The Committee felt it would be wiser to postpone the WDIHC event to 2025.
