Biographical history

The Canadian Athletic Club (CAC) was started in 1937 by a group of sports minded community league members who recognized a need for athletes from schools and community leagues to have a more competitive environment in which to play, in order to develop their skills. The club was involved in a variety of sports, such as hockey, baseball, soccer, lacrosse and boxing in the early years. However since the early 1960’s, the club has focused on hockey offering a complete program from Bantam to Junior. In the early 1980s the CAC began a hockey school and in the 1990’s expanded their Kurucz Tournament, as well as established a scholarship fund. The CAC celebrated their 75th Anniversary in 2012.
