Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer “Road Hockey” Update – Addressing the continuing COVID-19 pandemic

At The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, our fundraising events are crucial to funding world-leading cancer research and care at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. We are as committed as ever to ensuring safe, healthy and inspiring events in the years ahead.

As we plan for this year’s Road Hockey event, we know there are uncertainties with the COVID-19 pandemic and government restrictions. We are closely following the World Health Organization (WHO), Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and our University Health Network (UHN) guidelines.

As such, anyone participating in the 2022 live event in any capacity (participant, volunteer, contractor, celebrity, etc.) will need to be fully vaccinated to gain entry to the event site.

Note: with booster shots now part of the recommended vaccination, we will update this page to be consistent with what is considered to be "fully vaccinated" as more information or guidleines become available.  We will require participants to be fully vaccinated 14 days prior to the event.   

We of course want to also ensure you show up healthy on game day. That is why all participants will still be required to go through the standard COVID screening on-site. Once permitted, participants will receive an event wristband indicating they have access to everything on site.

As things evolve, we may need to modify some aspects of Road Hockey for the safety of all our participants, volunteers and supporters. We kindly ask for your patience as we determine the form those modifications (if any) may take.

One thing that will not change is our commitment to Conquering Cancer in our Lifetime and as always, we thank you for partnering with us in our mission.


What are you doing to ensure participant health and safety at the event?

We’ve considered all health and safety protocols to ensure that all participants can play safely. This includes COVID pre-screening, social distancing, sanitization stations, as well as enforcing masks where necessary.


We will continue to keep participants updated via email, on our website and through our social channels should there be any impact to Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer due to COVID-19.  We appreciate your patience and continued support.


There is free parking at the SmartVMC that is available to participants and guests. For parking and travel updates, please keep checking the Road Hockey website at
