CALGARY, AB – Sixteen Canadian officials have been approved by the International Ice Hockey Federation to work at eight different IIHF world championships during the 2006-2007 season. All sixteen officials are products of the Hockey Canada Officiating Program.

Hockey Canada recommended a number of candidates to the IIHF this past summer, and at the IIHF Semi-Annual Congress in Athens, Greece earlier this month the IIHF approved a number of nominations, including sixteen Canadians.
