Thierry Ferland (born August 3, 1997) is a Canadian pair skater. With his skating partner, Lori-Ann Matte, he is the 2018 Canadian national junior champion and finished within the top ten at two World Junior Championships (2017, 2018).
Thierry Ferland was born August 3, 1997, in Quebec City, Canada. After attending Cégep de Sainte-Foy, he enrolled at Université Laval, where he is studying teaching through distance education.
Ferland began learning to skate in 2003. He teamed up with Lori-Ann Matte around 2010. The pair won the novice bronze medal at the 2015 Canadian Championships and the novice silver medal at the 2015 Canada Winter Games. The following season, they moved up to the junior level and placed 6th at the 2016 Canadian Championships.
Matte/Ferland made their ISU Junior Grand Prix debut in September 2016. After winning the junior silver medal at the 2017 Canadian Championships, they were assigned to the 2017 World Junior Championships in Taipei. The pair ranked 7th in the short program, 12th in the free skate, and 9th overall at the competition in Taiwan. They were coached by Martine Simard in Lévis, Quebec, until the end of the season. In May 2017, they relocated to Montréal.
The pair lost several weeks of training after Matte broke her elbow, in autumn 2017. In January, Matte/Ferland won the junior pairs' title at the 2018 Canadian Championships. They placed 10th in the short program, 7th in the free skate, and 9th overall at the 2018 World Junior Championships, which took place in March in Sofia, Bulgaria. Richard Gauthier and Bruno Marcotte coached the pair in Montréal.
Making their senior international debut, Matte/Ferland placed fifth at the 2018 CS Autumn Classic International in September.
