CIRSA's Creation

In recognition of the rapidly growing number of Canadians purchasing and using in-line skates and, thus, the ultimate need for a national sports organization, the original concept for a CIRSA-type organization was first conceived in the early '90's. An application for incorporation for the CIRSA was originally filed with the federal government in March 1993, with federal approval being received in November of that same year.

In the process of incorporating CIRSA, strategic alliances were sought and received from the Canadian Amateur Speed Skating Association (the ice speed skating sport governing body), and from the Canadian Hockey Association (the sport governing body for ice hockey). These two organizations became, in essence, the founding partners of the CIRSA, an arrangement which is embedded in the approved General By-Law of the CIRSA.
