No. Our Nation Sport is Lacrosse. Ice Hockey was introduced in 1994 as our winter National Sport.

Actually the above answer is incorrect! Cricket was so popular in Canada during the time of Confederation (1867) that the first Prime Minister John A Macdonald anounced 'Cricket' as Canada's national sport. Later on it became less popular and was disregarded, in it's place we saw Baseball, Lacrosse and finally hockey take over. Moreover Cricket was never denounced as the national sport, only ignored.
