Skate Canada announced that Charlottetown, P.E.I., will host the 2012 Skate Canada Adult Figure Skating Championships. The event will take place from April 6-8, 2012, at the CARI Complex — MacLauchlan Arenas.

“Once again, we are thrilled to be returning to Charlottetown for another skating event.

We take pride in the large number of adults who participate in our programs and encourage this active lifestyle for all Canadians.”
