Team Canada 2021-2022 – International Figure Skating


Team Canada 2021-2022

 

Team Canada 2021-2022 looks very much the same as last season, with a couple of additions in pairs and ice dance.

A total of 24 athletes (up from 18 in 2020), comprised of three men, three ladies, four pairs and five ice dance teams have been selected. 

To earn a place on a national team, skaters must have finished in the top three at the 2020 Canadian Championships, and/or have a top-24 ranking in the ISU World Standings, and have confirmed they will compete in the 2021-2022 season. Athletes can be added at the discretion of Skate Canada based on new partnerships that are formed such as that of the new pairs team of Vanessa James and Eric Radford.

Madeline Schizas, who was never selected for a Junior Grand Prix is the only lady eligible to receive two senior Grand Prix assignments following her 13th place finish at the 2021 World Championships.
