GTHL Statement Re: March 2, 2023 Members Forum

On March 2, 2023, the Greater Toronto Hockey League had its semi-annual Members Forum with all organizations and members. During the meeting, a representative of one of the organizations made certain comments that were considered inappropriate. In the meeting, a GTHL representative indicated that there would be follow up by the League.

As of the morning of March 3, 2023, the individual has been suspended by the GTHL indefinitely, pending a hearing. The matter has been reported to the Hockey Canada Independent Third Party (ITP) pursuant to the applicable policy.

The GTHL has received numerous communications from individuals representing other organizations in the League condemning the comments made by this individual and indicating that those comments do not reflect the views of their organization. The GTHL remains committed to creating safe spaces for all individuals in the League and the sport as a whole.


Founded in 1911, the GTHL is a non-profit organization and the largest minor hockey league in the world. The GTHL registers more than 40,000 annual participants in Markham, Mississauga, Toronto and Vaughan. The purpose of the GTHL is to govern organized hockey for youth within its jurisdiction, and to foster participation that reflects the cultural demographic of the League’s territory while promoting an environment that is welcoming and inclusive for all participants.
