2022-2023 RBC-SJHL Community Ambassador Team

For the 5th year, RBC has partnered with the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) to highlight league’s athletes making positive differences in their communities.

One player from each SJHL team, who has shown exemplary commitment to their community and demonstrated exemplary leadership both on and off the ice, will be named to the 12-member RBC Community Ambassador team.

RBC Community Ambassadors are recognized for making a difference and giving back to their communities where they play. Each Ambassador is celebrated at an RBC Game Night* and will be honoured by a donation from RBC to a school in their local community.

Fans will be able to vote online for the RBC Community Ambassador of their choice to be honoured as the recipient of the RBC Community Award at the end of the SJHL regular season. This comes with a further donation from RBC in the player’s name to a school in their local community.

Last year’s RBC Community Award Winner, Carter McKay of the Melville Millionaires received his award, and was able to donate $2,500 to Melville Comprehensive School.

“Winning the award was obviously a huge honour to me. To be selected for it was unreal. The money went to my school, Melville Comprehensive, towards making it a better place, with new gym equipment and more supplies for classrooms,” said Carter McKay. “The way RBC gives the opportunity to donate money towards a school is pretty cool, as it gives the opportunity for some kids in smaller communities to have luxuries which they may not have like in some bigger communities.”

“The SJHL is honored to continue this partnership and bring back the RBC Community Ambassador Program,” SJHL Director of Marketing and Partnerships Jacob Faith said. “Partnerships like this that give back to the community while engaging with on-ice play are the types of relationships that are valuable beyond measure for our league and the twelve member communities. We’re all looking forward to the battle to be crowned the SJHL’s RBC Community Ambassador this season!”

“Our partnership with SJHL spans over two decades and in this time, we’ve seen time and again how the players, teams and league give back to all our communities in so many ways,” says Jon Barth, RBC Regional Vice President, Southern Saskatchewan. “The RBC Community Ambassador program is a way to recognize and reward these efforts. We thank and congratulate the recipients who are selected by their teams for their care and leadership.”

This year’s RBC Community Ambassadors will be recognized at RBC Game Nights taking place between January 13th and March 7th.
