CanSkate is Skate Canada's flagship program, designed for skaters that are able to skate unassisted with ease. When you sign up for CanSkate you will be in a program that focuses on fun, participation and basic skill development. You will earn badges and other incentives as you learn fundamental skating skills. Lessons are given in a group format and led by an NCCP certified professional coach. Professional coaches are assisted by trained Program Assistants.

The coach to student ratio is a maximum of 1:10. Skaters progress at their own rate, and coaches make sessions active using teaching aids, music and a wide variety of activities that create a fun environment that promotes learning.

CanSkate is the feeder program to all other Skate Canada Skating Programs.
