Montréal Canadiens celebrate Canadian Armed Forces before the holidays
What could be more Canadian than marrying hockey with the military? Hockey, like other team sports, is a vital contributor to fitness, teamwork, loyalty, and esprit de corps – which is the embodiment of the Canadian Armed Forces and the commitment of our troops.

Over the past few years, our partnership with the Montréal Canadiens has become stronger than ever, and has gained momentum with fans as well. This year, we were honoured to receive a cheque for $27,471, the proceeds from the warm-up jersey auction and other fundraising efforts conducted by the Canadiens and their Foundation.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to the team for continuing to stand with the women and men of the Canadian Armed Forces.
