Similar to many other leading sport-brands, Team Canada continues to see its genuine licensed products being copied by counterfeiters. With the 2014 Olympic Winter Games underway in Sochi, Russia, the prevalence of counterfeit products is on the rise.
Protect yourself by purchasing genuine Team Canada products only from an authorized retailer. If an offer seems too good to be true, it likely is.
If you are concerned about a web shop offering Team Canada products that may not be genuine, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org with as much information as possible, including your contact information.
The following websites are NOT authorized to sell Team Canada merchandise, and the products being offered are counterfeit. It appears to mimic Hockey Canada’s own web shop; protect yourself and be aware.
If you suspect that you may be the target of fraud and you would like to file an official report, please contact the RCMP's anti-fraud centre:
