Every season, Hockey Canada brings three international events – the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, World Junior A Challenge, and Canadian Tire Para Hockey Cup – as well as four national championships – the National Women’s Under-18 Championship, Esso Cup, TELUS Cup, and Centennial Cup – to new communities across the country. The net proceeds from those events remains in the host communities as a legacy to allow them to invest in growing the game locally.
As a Hockey Canada International marketing partner, BDO is expanding that legacy through BDO Goals for Kids – a program that will see $50 for every goal scored at a national championship, and $100 for every goal scored by Team Canada at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, World Junior A Challenge, and Canadian Tire Para Hockey Cup – go back to the minor hockey association in that community to assist with offsetting equipment and registration costs for young players.
To date, the Goals for Kids program has produced a net legacy of over $60,000 in the two years it has been active.
