The City is pleased to announce that the proceeds from the Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada event have officially been distributed to Community Foundation Grey Bruce and will be held in perpetuity. The interest earned from the funds will support projects helping children in Owen Sound who are facing financial barriers to playing hockey. 

Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada 2023 was broadcast live across the country from the Good Cheer Rink in Harrison Park and the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre in Owen Sound on Saturday, January 21, 2023.  The event was presented in partnership with? the City of Owen Sound, Sportsnet, and Scotiabank.   

In June, an event wrap-up report was presented to the Community Services Committee and the following recommendations were approved: 

1. The City of Owen Sound will feature the framed Hockey Day in Canada 2023 Jersey signed by Ron MacLean in the Bayshore Community Centre, close to the administrative office. 

2. The Sports Hall of Fame display case at the Bayshore Community Centre will exhibit the pair of custom CCM Tack skates featuring Herb Carnegie (donated to the City by Sportsnet). 

3. The proceeds in the amount of $20 217.33 will be directed to Community Foundation Grey Bruce to be used for programs that help local children access hockey (with the advisement of the Owen Sound Fund Management Committee, based on financial need).

We are so pleased to be sharing the proceeds from this spectacular event with Community Foundation Grey Bruce so that more local kids can have access to the wonderful game of hockey.”
