MISSISSAUGA - Mississauga, Ont., will play first-time host to the 2013 Canadian figure skating championships.

Skate Canada says the championships will be held Jan. 13-20 at the Hershey Centre, which hosted Skate Canada International last October.

Mississauga also hosted Skate Canada -- an ISU Grand Prix event -- in 2000 and 2003, but has never hosted the national championship.

Some 260 skaters will compete at the senior, junior and novice levels.

The 2013 world figure skating championships will be held in London, Ont.
