The North Sydney Community Forum was an indoor arena located in the former North Sydney, Nova Scotia.  The arena opened in 1947. The arena was closed in February of 1999 by the Department of Labour.  The arena was reopened (unkown date) and is run as a community rink.  The arena has been replaced as the main hockey rink in the North Sydney area by the Emera Centre Northside which opened in 2011. The arena closed at the end of the 2010-11 playing season.

The arena was originally built as an aircraft hangar at the Cornwallis Naval Base.  The facility was dismantled and hauled by freight train to Cape Breton and then reassembled as a hockey rink.
