Active Halifax Communities Skate Drive

RBC and HRM have partnered to organize Active Halifax Communities Skate Drive 2010!

The Active Halifax Communities Skate Drive 2010 is designed to build up a collection of ice skates, to make use of at the Canada Games Speed Skating Oval on the Halifax Commons. Opening in December, the Canada Games Oval will be available for public use, free of charge. The mission of this program is to accumulate enough skates to loan a pair to anyone who needs one, free of charge.

Skates can be dropped off at all RBC locations across HRM. You can also email, to organize a pickup of skates from your business or organization. The Active Halifax Communities Skate Drive will run until December 17th.

If you have skates in your basement that no longer fit, are collecting dust and taking up space, we have the opportunity to not only clear out that clutter, but also put the skates to good use. New skaters, experienced skaters, and more, will benefit from your donation.

Once the temporary Oval on the commons is dismantled, the collected skates will be organized so they can be borrowed by community groups, rinks who offer free skating programs, schools, and other groups. This will keep the collected skates in good use for years to come!
