Historical

 

Collectively, the Toronto and Montreal Gay Hockey Associations have decided to pursue a unique LGBTQ+ ice hockey tournament, Coupe Canada Cup (previously called the Eastern Canada Cup), which rotate annually between the 2 cities. 

The main reason for moving ahead with this approach is the increasing number of tournaments and gay hockey-related events throughout North America and the rest of the world. Under the current economic conditions, the 2 associations strongly feel it’s better to unite our efforts and present one memorable hockey event per year.
