2019 Ian Carmichael Memorial Award

The Ian Carmichael Award is open to skaters or ex-skaters who are continuing in the sport as an Official and/or Coach.

Ian Carmichael was a competitive skater in Manitoba who progressed into the judging ranks following his skating career. Dedicated to the sport he loved, he soon advanced to the Gold Test level and traveled the province, judging competitions and tests. A dentist by profession, Ian was always concerned with self-improvement and continued to study and upgrade, both professionally and within the sport until just prior to his tragic death in 1992.

Ian made a most generous bequest to the Manitoba Section, Skate Canada. The Board of Directors recommended that a monetary Award be made annually using the interest from this money.
