The Role of HDCO

A joint project of the Government of Ontario and the amateur hockey bodies in Ontario, the HDCO was created to establish "one voice" for amateur hockey in Ontario and to play a coordinating role between the member organizations.

The offices of the HDCO are located in East York. The HDCO has two (2) full-time staff, an Executive Director and an Executive Assistant, to carry out the day-to-day operations of the organization.

The HDCO plays a coordinating role with its members in the following ways:

by providing financial support and other resources, as available, to assist the programs and services offered to amateur hockey participants in the province.
by referring inquiries related to competition and jurisdiction to the appropriate member organization.
by assisting and promoting the orderly development, implementation and management of programs and services for amateur hockey in Ontario.
by acting as a representative of amateur hockey in the province to government, media and other provincial groups.
by acting as a voice and an advocate for amateur hockey in Ontario.

The HDCO is a non-profit organization that receives financial support by the Provincial Sport and Recreation Branch of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport.
