Canadian officials have their passports updated and their bags packed.

Forty-six officials – 24 referees and 22 linespersons – have been licenced by the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) for international competition during the 2022-23 season.

Specific assignments will be announced by the IIHF throughout the season.

“Hockey Canada is extremely proud of the officials who have been selected for international events this season,” said Dan Hanoomansingh, manager of officiating with Hockey Canada. “The competition for an international license is stronger than ever and that is a credit to the officials who have reached this level and the ones who continue to earn their spot on this list.”

All of the officials are products of the National High Performance Officiating Program, which prepares Canada's top officials for success at the highest levels of the game. Receiving an IIHF assignment represents years of work on the part of these officials and their Member officiating development programs.

“Our program is for anyone who is interested in officiating, from the grassroots to the international game,” said Hanoomansingh. “Hockey Canada's 13 Members provide a path for anyone to participate in officiating, develop a love for the game and achieve their goals. Officials are integral to the game, enforcing the standard of safe and fair play in arenas from coast to coast to coast. No matter what the level, without officials, there is no game.”

Three Canadians will also work as part of the IIHF officiating coaching staff this season: Kevin Muench (Moose Jaw, Sask.), Jacqui Palm (Newmarket, Ont.) and Vanessa Stratton (Windsor, Ont.).
