The IIHF and Hockey Canada announced today that the 2021 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship in Halifax and Truro will be cancelled.

 
 
 
 

The provincial government of Nova Scotia, Canada decided that the Women's World championship has to be cancelled. The tournament was scheduled to rake place May 6-16.

"This is very disappointing news to receive with just a few weeks until the tournament was to begin. We strongly believe that we had the adequate safety measures in place to protect players, officials, spectators, and all residents in Halifax and Truro, based on the IIHF and Hockey Canada’s experiences from hosting the IIHF World Junior Championship in Edmonton.", says the IIHF president René Fasel to IIHF.com.

There is still a chance the tournament can be played in the summer if it is deemed safe to do so.
