IIHF World Junior Championship

Hockey Canada, the managing body of hockey in Canada is now beginning the quest to search for host for the IIHF World Junior Championship for 2010 and 2012. While Switzerland was originally given the opportunity to host the 2010 championships, they decline as they feared they were being relegated at the home team. This means that Canada will be hosting 2009 (in Ottawa) 2010 and 2012.

Currently, the following cities have submitted letter of intent:

Bid Group Bid Years
Calgary/ Edmonton, AB 2012
Halifax, NS 2010, 2012
London/ Windsor, ON 2012
Saskatoon, SK 2010, 2012
Toronto, ON 2012
Winnipeg, MB 2010, 2012
