Established in 1975, the Canadian Hockey League (CHL) is the world’s largest development hockey league and top supplier of talent to the National Hockey League and U SPORTS.
As Canada’s top supporter of academic scholarships, the CHL provides a year’s worth of tuition and book fees for each season played in the League, with players eligible to attend any Canadian or American-based post-secondary institution. In 2021-22, CHL scholarships accounted for nearly $10 million.
On an annual basis, the CHL supports many community causes including Pink in the Rink in support of breast cancer and cancer research charities, Talk Today in support of the Canadian Mental Health Association, and local children’s charities with Teddy Bear Toss nights, among others. The CHL is also a major supporter of Canadian minor hockey with strong support at the league and club levels, and backing community hockey at the grassroots level via local and regional minor hockey programs, player development camps, officiating development camps, sponsorship programs, community fundraising events and engagement, and more.
