“After a career that has taken us to many corners of the world, it’s thrilling to return to Canada and celebrate with those who have supported us every step of the way. Visiting cities that don’t ordinarily get skating productions is particularly special to us, as we know firsthand how important grassroots programs are in small towns – it’s how we got our start! Our hope is to inspire a new generation to pursue their goals fearlessly,” says Tessa Virtue.
“We love Canada, we love Canadians and we love what this country represents! It’s the perfect time in our career to say thank you and acknowledge the unwavering and unconditional support we’ve received over the years,” adds Scott Moir.
