Covid-19 Press Release: March 16, 2020

Posted on

Taekwondo Canada’s primary concern is and has always been the safety and health of our athletes.  To this end, please be advised of the following event cancellations:


Poomsae Worlds:

As some of you may be aware, the 2020 Poomsae Worlds has been cancelled.  At this time, it is not being rescheduled.  


Senior Pan Am Championships Selection Event (Senior National Championships):

In consultation with our members, Taekwondo Canada is cancelling the 2020 Senior Pan Am Championships selection event (Senior Nationals) in April. We will refund registration fees for those who have already registered. Please email with your receipt.  We will be using our list as well to begin issuing receipts right away, but just in case someone is missed, this will ensure you all receive your fees back as efficiently as possible. At this time, this event is not being rescheduled. 


Senior Pan Am Championships – Canadian Participation:

In the interests of ensuring the safety of our athletes and coaches, Taekwondo Canada will not be sending a team to the 2020 Senior Pan Am Championships in June.  This will include not sending or registering any athletes who have pre-qualified for the event. This is not a decision that was made lightly and we are confident that our members understand the rationale behind this decision. 


FISU America Games:

Currently, this event has been postponed.  We will continue to provide updates as they become available.  


International Travel: 

In accordance with Health Canada recommendations, Taekwondo Canada strongly encourages all individuals to refrain from international travel at this time. 



Information is changing daily and sometimes hourly. Taekwondo Canada will endeavor to keep our members updated as efficiently as possible over the upcoming weeks as situations change.  Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
