The Women’s Hockey Club of Toronto (WHCT) is an adult recreational non-body-checking ice hockey league open to women who are lesbian, bisexual, queer, trans, two-spirited, nonbinary or allied. All players are welcome regardless of skill level — beginners just learning to play, mid-range and experienced players. The League was first created in 1993 to offer safe space for gay and gay-positive women to play hockey. In the more than 25 years since, WHCT has progressed into a League that is also inclusive of and welcoming to trans and non-binary players.
WHCT is believed to be the only queer women’s hockey league in Canada and certainly one of the largest in North America. The League has 12 teams, each with 15 players including goalie and every attempt is made to balance the teams with a mixture of players from all skill levels
