A word from the President
For all of our fans, the Canadiens continue to be a source of excitement, pride and inspiration, and we aim to meet all of the needs of our fans – both on and off the ice. Indeed, every single member of our organization shares a common sense of generosity, authenticity, accessibility and team spirit that goes beyond the call of duty, guiding our ongoing dedication and commitment to the community.
Whether they are players, hockey management, ambassadors, stars of yesteryea , or employees, everyone who is a part of the Montreal Canadiens Family demonstrates the team’s sense of common values through a multitude of gestures and acts. These are a testimonial to the importance and to the sense of attachment that we feel for each and every Habs fan in Quebec and beyond.
In “The Winning Goal”, we introduce you to all the initiatives that the team undertook during the 2005-06 season. The club carried out its mandate in the heart of the community by getting youth interested and impassioned by hockey, our national sport.
I want to thank all of our partners and fans who supported the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation. Your generosity allowed us to donate close to $1 million to community organizations that help underprivileged kids.
e have already started working on the calendar of events that will mark the 100th anniversary of the Canadiens in 2009. e also intend, over the next few years, to increase our community activities so that the Centennial celebrations will truly be an exceptional event, and one filled with joy, pride and solidarity in the true image of the rich heritage and tradition of the Montreal Canadiens.
