The recent Olympic win(s) by Canada’s favourite duo, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, has got us inspired to lace up our skates and hit the ice. But let’s be honest, skating in -25°C isn’t anyone’s idea of a fun adventure.

We have rounded up a list of city run skating rinks that are indoors and open to the public at various times throughout the week. Find the one closest to you, check the public skate hours (some vary by week), and head on down with the whole family!
