The Skate Lending Library is over for winter 2023/24

The City of Toronto’s Skate Lending Library, in partnership with Desjardins Financial Group, brings free ice skates and helmet rentals to outdoor rinks in Toronto. Whether you’re taking your first glide on the ice or a seasoned professional, we’re aiming to make skating accessible to all. Check the schedule on this page and let’s lace up together for some winter fun.

Skate Lending Library locations also have skate aids for use that help with balancing on the ice while learning how to skate.

The Skate Lending Library van visited outdoor ice rink locations throughout winter 2023/24. The winter 2023/24 season is over.

The Skate Lending Library is free for all ages and requires no prior reservation. Check the schedule on this page, look out for a Skate Lending Library van and get laced up!

Equipment includes:

  • Skates
  • Helmets
  • Skating aids

Helmets are encouraged for all skaters.

Equipment will be sanitized between use.

The Skate Lending Library is graciously offered by Desjardins Financial Group.
