Among the subjects and agenda items for discussion at the 2004 Hockey Canada AGM are:
" The 2003-2004 season has been a tremendous year once again with over 500,000 young boys and girls participating in our great game, not to mention the officials, coaches and volunteers that are committed to hockey in Canada," said Allan Matthews, Chair of the board of Hockey Canada. "This season saw Canada host the best ever World Women’s Hockey Championship, successful national championships, as well as top finishes at IIHF Championships. Canada is again ranked by the IIHF as the number one hockey nation in the world. The Annual General Meeting is a time to reflect on the successes of the past year, but to also plan for improvements to our game at all levels well into the future. "
