This pattern also happened in the maritime provinces as well.
What trend has been happening in the Maritimes? Population has at least doubled in my time, and yet I've seen teams in certain age groups have to merge with neighbouring towns to form a single team, and I think enrollment (of boys, anyway) is actually on the decline. Same for pretty much every province out here, btw. And trust me when I say the trend was a lot worse around the 90s, when times were even harder out here.

the last decade+ of hockey registration numbers for Hockey Canada
