Shortage of certified ice staff can become a problem for future hockey matches

Shortage of certified ice staff can become a problem for future hockey matches

Hockey games are under threat due to staff shortages.

Transcona's East End Arena has matches every hour starting from morning and ending at night.

According to the rules of the province, a licensed operator should be on site when the rink is in use. However, there are very few licensed operators at the moment, because not all employees are licensed on the provincial exam.

These security measures are officially taken in the province after the tragedy that took the lives of three people in Fernie, B.C.

Certain changes have occurred in the exam, in connection with which cases of refusals have become frequent.

At the moment the city informs that community club arenas can choose from a list of city operators who wants to take extra shifts. If city operators are interested in additional work, they can help community club arenas.

Unfortunately, if the situation does not change in the near future, this arena and many others may be left without matches and be empty.
