A Community Club

25 years ago, thanks to the tireless work of a small group and support from thousands in our community, the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club returned to our nation’s capital. As a result of that partnership, the community has become an integral part of the team, its players, alumni and staff.  We are all working towards the same goal: to make the National Capital Region a better place to live, work and play.


Thanks to your support, we are making investments in programs and initiatives focused on giving children an opportunity. An opportunity to play sports, get a quality education and access to important health care services when they need them most.

Together, we are Game Changers for Youth.

HOW WE’VE MADE A DIFFERENCE

“Our hockey club and foundation stand among the best in the National Hockey League teams in terms of amount of effort, priority and commitment we place towards our community and its many charitable causes,”

Eugene Melnyk

Owner, Governor and Chairman, Ottawa Senators Hockey Club

“Winning on the ice is temporary, how players use their status in the community lasts a lifetime. Being a member of the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club means giving back to our community and helping those who need it most,”

Pierre Dorion

General Manager, Ottawa Senators Hockey Club

“It was a partnership with the community that helped us bring the team back to Ottawa. It will forever be our responsibility to honour that partnership by doing what we can to make the National Capital Region a better place to live, work and play.”

Cyril Leeder

President, Ottawa Senators Hockey Club

“Giving children and youth access to recreation, a quality education and specialized healthcare services are the core pieces of all our community investments,”

Danielle Robinson

President & CEO, Ottawa Senators Foundation

“Playing team sports recreationally or otherwise is critically important to kids, not only does it provide them with physical activity and the chance to interact with their peers, it teaches them invaluable life lessons about collective effort, shared achievement and the importance of giving back to community,”

Goldy Hyder

President and CEO, H+K Strategies and Ottawa Senators Foundation Board Member
