Skate Exchange

The Skate Exchange, hosted by the City of Greater Sudbury and Public Health Sudbury & Districts, is a program that aims to encourage residents to go outside, be active, and enjoy winter weather with their families. The Skate Exchange takes place annually at different locations around the City.

Residents can participate in one of the following ways:

  • Picking up a pair of used skates: These skates are free, and are yours to own.
  • Donating a pair of used skates: Donations give participants access to a wider variety of sizes and styles.
  • Donating and picking up: If you or your child has outgrown a pair of skates, you can donate it, and pick up a suitable pair.

Thank you to Skater’s Edge Source for Sports and Value Village for generously supporting this program.

Note: skates are given out on a first-come, first-serve basis. Since the Skate Exchange relies on donations, skate sizes and quantities will vary.
