Speed Skating Canada is the governing body for speed skating in Canada. The rules governing speed skating in Canada can be found in SSC's Red Book.
Speed skating ice times on the Emera Oval are posted on the SkateHRM website. There is no charge to skate during the speed skating ice times, but you must be a member of Speed Skate Nova Scotia and be wearing speed skates to skate during these ice times. Certain ice times will be dedicated to different activities, including Learn to Speed Skate sessions, competitions and racing, and either high speed or low speed activities. Skaters must follow the direction of the speed skating coaches on the ice regarding the uses of different areas of the track.
