The Scottish Society of Ottawa presents

Sir John A's Great Canadian Kilt Skate

Coming to a rink near you:

Sir John A’s Great Canadian Kilt Skate is indelibly Scottish and undeniably Canadian. It speaks to the Scottish contribution to Canada’s multicultural heritage, and in 2018, it will be bigger than ever.

This event is open to everyone. It’s a chance to nurture your inner Scot. You don’t have to be Scottish. You don’t even have to wear a kilt. Just come to the party with a spirit of Scottish fun and fortitude, and wear Canada’s favourite colour – tartan!

How did it begin? To celebrate the bicentennial of Canada's first prime minister, the Scottish Society of Ottawa launched the first Sir John A's Great Canadian Kilt Skate on January 31, 2015. Other cities joined in. This year, we're expecting even more cities across Canada to celebrate the Fourth Annual Sir John A's Great Canadian Kilt Skate.

Once again, we will turn to the Government of Scotland to help us celebrate. 

Sir John A's Great Canadian Kilt Skate is becoming an annual event that is both uniquely Canadian and undeniably Scottish.
