Skaters from around the world will arrive in Mississauga this fall to take part 2022 Skate Canada International.

This will be the fifth time the event will be held in Mississauga and will take place at Paramount Fine Foods Centre from October 28-30.

The event is the second competition in the annual International Skating Union (ISU) Grand Prix of Figure Skating series that sees similar events take place at several global locations.

“Skate Canada is looking forward to welcoming fans back to Skate Canada International for the 2022-23 grand prix season. This October, Mississauga will host some of the best skaters from around the world as they compete for valuable points on the grand prix circuit,” said Debra Armstrong, Chief Executive Officer, Skate Canada. “We are thrilled to be working with long-time figure skating supporters, the City of Mississauga and Paramount Fine Foods Centre to deliver this event for all participants and fans to enjoy.”  

Victoria Clarke of Tourism Mississauga said the event is an important one for the city as it will attracts an international audience and positions Mississauga on the international stage as a destination of choice for elite sporting events.

“Hosting large-scale sporting events, like Skate Canada, fills our hotels, restaurants and retailers and greatly contributes to the economy overall, with this event bringing an estimated $5 million in visitor spending,” Clarke said.
