CLUB HOCKEY CANADA
HOCKEY CANADA UNVEILS CLUB HOCKEY CANADA

With the 2012-13 season set to start across Canada, Hockey Canada is excited to introduce Club Hockey Canada, a loyalty program for registered hockey players, their parents, coaches and officials.

This fall, more than 450,000 households, totaling over 1.4 million members, will receive their free welcome kit and membership card. Once the card is activated online at www.clubhockeycanada.ca, Club Hockey Canada members will receive exclusive discounts, rewards and experiences from Hockey Canada and its sponsors - leading national brands such as Boston Pizza, Lowe’s, Esso, Bauer and Nestle, to name a few. Members will also qualify for entry into an amazing contest to win an Ultimate Team Canada Experience, plus weekly draw prizes.

Other features of Club Hockey Canada include The Hockey Zone, an online space for hockey fans of all ages to play games, watch exclusive videos and follow the latest hockey news. In addition, Club Hockey Canada’s online store will feature items from national brands, including gas and grocery gift cards, sporting equipment, and Hockey Canada merchandise, with a portion of each purchase automatically going into a household PUCK BUCKS account. PUCK BUCKS can be redeemed to off-set next season’s registration fees or team expenses, to help Canadian families lower the cost of hockey.

“Hockey Canada’s goal is, and has always been, to get more players participating in our game,” said Bob Nicholson, president and CEO of Hockey Canada. “We feel this is a tremendous opportunity to leverage the corporate partnerships we have and make the game more affordable and accessible. We want to maximize what is available to us, to bring down the costs associated with playing the game.”  

Every season, more than 550,000 players, along with tens of thousands of coaches and officials, take to ice in one of Hockey Canada’s 13 branches and thousands of minor hockey associations from coast to coast. Club Hockey Canada will reward their participation in Canada’s game by cutting down on costs just by doing everyday tasks, such as buying gas or dinner for the family.

Township of Georgian Bluffs
Just a few hours from major Ontario cities, Georgian Bluffs is a collection of communities stretching north from Chatsworth to just south of Wiarton. Copper Kettle, Cobble Beach, Slough of Despond, Big Bay, Oxenden, Balmy Beach… these are just some of the names that paint a picture of the Georgian Bluffs canvas along the Georgian Bay Coastal Route. We have the natural beauty of waterfalls, the Niagara Escarpment and the blue waters of Georgian Bay just to mention a few of our natural amenities. We are a township for all seasons!
Township of Chatsworth
Essentially a rural community, the Township of Chatsworth takes its flavour from the farmlands and forests surrounding it. We welcome visitors to stop and visit as you drive through central Grey County. Amalgamated January 1, 2000, the Township of Chatsworth is made up of the former Townships of Holland and Sullivan and the Village of Chatsworth. The Township population is approximately 8,000 in an area of 260 square miles. Agriculture is the most predominant industry in the Township. There are also a significant number of sawmills in the township, many operated by the Amish community. Tourism and recreation are a growing industry. The Niagara Escarpment, 6 county forests, numerous conservation areas, inland lakes and major rivers provide plenty of year round activities including hiking, biking, snowmobiling, and cross country skiing.
