Sports Celebrities Festival

The Sports Celebrities Festival presented by Wheaton Precious Metals is an inspiring and interactive event celebrating the power of sport and the human spirit.

Canucks for Kids Fund

The CFKF is dedicated to assisting charities that support children’s health and wellness, foster the development of grassroots hockey and facilitate and encourage education in British Columbia. This year, the CFKF is proud to generously support its three core beneficiaries once again, including the Canucks Autism Network, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice and BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. More than 20 additional BC charities also received grants from the CFKF, including many that offer COVID-19 relief support to families and seniors.
