To celebrate this milestone, Scotiabank's love for hockey and its continued support of young people in the community, the Bank is surprising some kids' community hockey teams and young inspirational leaders with the opportunity to attend NHL® games in all seven Canadian NHL cities, during the 2017-2018 hockey season.

"Through Scotiabank's support of community hockey, we have helped give over one million kids and counting the chance to play Canada's favourite game," said John Doig, Chief Marketing Officer at Scotiabank. "We have seen so many dreams become a reality through sport, and we are proud to be able to help provide young people across the country with the chance to see their hockey heroes play the game they love. At Scotiabank, we believe that everyone needs a team. Whether at home, work or at school, we know that being part of a team is a living example of how we are better together."  

Scotiabank supports hockey at all levels in Canada ? from grassroots hockey through to the NHL. This year we are continuing our support of community hockey teams, all seven Canadian NHL teams, the Canadian Women's Hockey League, and some of the biggest celebrations of hockey including Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada, Rogers Hometown Hockey, Scotiabank Girls Hockey Fest, and many more!

Scotiabank isn't stopping at supporting one million kids. We have even more hockey dreams to make a reality.

"At Scotiabank we believe that investing in young people is the pathway to community prosperity, and we are committed to helping them reach their infinite potential," said Jacquie Ryan, Vice President, Sponsorship & Philanthropy at Scotiabank. "Young people are our future leaders and Scotiabank's goal is to help ensure that they have the necessary skills and resources they need to support their success.  That's why we are celebrating the milestone of Scotiabank supporting one million kids and counting through community hockey and why we remain committed to making more hockey dreams come true for young Canadians."

Scotiabank and Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment (MLSE) recently announced an expanded sponsorship and philanthropic partnership which will see the home of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Raptors transformed into the Scotiabank Arena in July, 2018. The announcement is an extension of Scotiabank's love of the game of hockey and its commitment to helping young people reach their infinite potential.  This partnership will enhance that support in the Greater Toronto Area and help expand community hockey programs for young people across the country.
