With it’s roots deeply imbedded in Nova Scotia and one of
Canada’s most recognizable financial institutions, Scotiabank,
has confirmed its support of Maritime NHL’er for Kids and has
become a Co-Presenting Sponsor.
Scotiabank will also become
the title sponsor of the Scotiabank Caddie Kids program, where as many as 130 Pee Wee and Bantam
aged boys and girls from the local minor hockey association are integrated fully into the golf tournament
in groups of 3 as “caddies’” with teams of business leaders and hockey heroes.
“Hockey matters to Scotiabank because it matters to Canadians,” said Gordon Brost, Scotiabank’s
District Vice President for South West Nova Scotia district. “That’s why we are proud to support the
Maritime NHL’ers for Kids, as it aligns to Scotiabank’s commitment to helping young people reach
their infinite potential both on and off the ice. Earlier this year Scotiabank reached the important
milestone of helping to support one million kids and counting through our support of community
hockey across Canada. We believe young people are our future leaders and our goal is to help ensure
that they have the necessary skills and resources they need to support their success.”
“The alliance between Scotiabank and Maritime NHL’ers for Kids is one of the many ways we will
deliver on our commitment of helping young people reach their infinite goal.”

Maritime NHL’ers for Kids is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to establishing long-term, sustainable funding to help remove the financial barriers preventing young maritime boys and girls from playing minor hockey.

For many years, Maritime NHL’ers for Kids has enjoyed a very strong partnership with the NHLPA and their Goals & Dreams program.

Over the lifetime of our working relationship, as many as 300 full sets of hockey equipment have been donated..!
