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.
