The National Aboriginal Hockey Championships (NAHC), founded by the Aboriginal Sport Circle (ASC) and sanctioned by Hockey Canada, provides a forum for elite Bantam and Midget-aged Aboriginal hockey players from across Canada showcasing the athletic abilities of athletes from across the country, while also fostering cultural unity and pride. An event held annually since 2001, the NAHC also serves as a focal point for grassroots and regional Aboriginal hockey development.

On October 27, 2021, the Aboriginal Sport Circle (ASC) announced that Membertou, Nova Scotia, will be the host for the 2022 NAHC.  The event will take place from May 7 to May 14, 2022, at the Membertou Sport and Wellness Centre with over 500 participants expected to be in attendance. Membertou has a long history of hosting national level events, including the 2018 National Aboriginal Hockey Championships.

Tryouts for Team Ontario will be announced soon. Stay up-to-date by following ISWO’s social media pages.
