Youth Programs - Vancouver Canucks Centre for BC Hockey

BC Hockey works in partnership with the Vancouver Canucks through the Canucks Centre for BC Hockey to bring opportunities to minor hockey in British Columbia and the Yukon. The centre aims to provide programs and initiatives supporting growth and development of coaches, players and fans.

The partnership is a cooperative effort in which each organization assists the other in the promotion, organization, development, administration, recognition and execution of programs at all levels of amateur hockey.
