Over 400 provincial representatives are expected to attend this year’s AGM, to discuss issues relating to hockey in Canada.

"The 2002-03 season is rapidly coming to a close. It has been a tremendous year once again with 500,000 young people participating in our great game," said Sheldon Lanchbery, Chair of the board of the CHA. "This year saw Canada host the best ever World Junior Championship, as well as success at the Under 18 and World IIHF Championships. The Annual General Meeting is a time to reflect on the successes of the last year, but to plan for improvements to our game well into the future. "
