Amalgamation Town Hall Info Nights & Vote Info
This November, Belmont and Aylmer hockey families have two final opportunities to weigh in on the proposed representation (Rep) hockey amalgamation before being asked to vote on the proposal on Nov. 17 and 18, 2023.

In order for amalgamation to proceed, members in both centers must vote and the ⅔ majority must support moving Rep hockey to the East Elgin Minor Hockey Association. Local League programs in both centers will not be impacted by amalgamation.

Town Hall Meetings

Two town halls have been scheduled. To cast an informed vote, we strongly encourage members to attend one, or both, of these meetings to hear important information and updates.

We ask all members to bring their questions or submit them to be addressed at the meetings. Email them in advance to [email protected] by Mon Oct. 30 to have them addressed during the town halls.
