Hockey Canada believes...
In a positive hockey experience for all participants, in a safe, sportsmanlike environment.
In the development of life skills which will benefit participants throughout their lives.
In the values of fair play and sportsmanship, including the development of respect for all people by all participants.
In hockey opportunities for all people regardless of age, gender, colour, race, ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, or socio-economic status and in both official languages.
In the importance for participants to develop dignity and self- esteem.
To instill the values of honesty and integrity in participants at all times.
In the promotion of teamwork, and the belief that what groups and society can achieve as a whole is greater than that which can be achieved by individuals.
