Mandatory Fields Self-Declaration Demographic Data Hockey Canada Registry Every profile within the Hockey Canada Registry will require the mandatory data to be entered before it can be saved. This will enable Hockey Canada and BC Hockey to quickly and efficiently pursue our national goal of having clean and reliable data to support reporting and analysis. The collection of self-identification data is central to equity, diversity and inclusion efforts. The data provides information on diversity of the population registering to play hockey and this data increases our ability to enhance programs and also recognize and remove barriers for equity deserving groups. As the HCR’s purpose is to register participants it is reasonable to use this platform to collect registration related data on participants that will assist with the growth and retention of players throughout the country. The self-declaration demographic data being collected through the use of the HCR platform is consistent with how the Government of Canada solicits this information including the options you see on ethnicity, language and Indigenous Peoples. There are many factors as to why and how this data is collected, therefore here is a link to the Government of Canada website on this topic if you wish to educate yourself further: https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/063.nsf/eng/h_97737.html#1 Hockey Canada recognizes that terminology is not universally agreed upon and continues to evolve. Therefore, we will continue to evaluate feedback received for review at the end of each hockey season. The attached two PDFs outline how to set up a My Account for parents and how to update all the information required. Further information will be distributed if there are additional questions that come forward.
