Canada's History

Canada’s national sports


Twenty-five years ago, Canada declared its national sports: lacrosse and hockey. Lacrosse originated among First Nations in North America as a game dedicated to the Creator, with one of the first Canadian references to the sport recorded in 1637. The first organized game of hockey was played in Montreal in 1875, but the sport’s birthplace is still debated.
