Canlan Ice Sports and Scotiabank to host free public skating event to celebrate
the newly named Scotia Barn
BURNABY, BC, Feb. 6, 2020 /CNW/ - Scotiabank is excited to bring Scotiabank® Hockey Day in Canada (SHDiC) – a cross-country celebration of hockey – to Burnaby's Scotia Barn on Saturday, February 8. As part of the celebration, Canlan Ice Sports and Scotiabank will be unveiling the newly installed Scotia Barn signage with local kids' community hockey teams. The event will feature a free public skate, a special appearance from hockey alumnus Chris Higgins and exciting giveaways.
As the title sponsor of the 20th annual Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada, Scotiabank is proud to support this celebration of hockey. SHDiC is taking place this year in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, February 5-8, and continuing with celebrations across the country in three satellite locations: Burnaby, British Columbia; Churchill, Manitoba; and Ottawa, Ontario (A Rogers Hometown Hockey stop).
Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada is about much more than just the game of hockey – it's about coming together as a community. Scotiabank is committed to supporting every goal, on and off the ice. Scotiabank believes hockey teaches kids values and lessons that they can use outside the arena, and for the rest of their lives. Helping kids succeed on the ice means helping them succeed everywhere. Since 2008, Scotiabank has proudly supported one million kids and counting. Hockey matters to Scotiabank because it matters to Canadians. We are fans, coaches, and players.
Sportsnet will be onsite capturing how the people of Burnaby are celebrating Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada at Scotia Barn.
