Vancouver Canadians in the Community

The Vancouver Canadians Baseball Club is proud to give back to the same community that has supported baseball in British Columbia for more than 100 years, as well as here at Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium since 1951.

Along with some great partners, the Vancouver Canadians' mandate remains focused on supporting local initiatives in a unique and spirited fashion. Whether we donate tickets, arrange for appearances by our mascots, or assist with fundraising programs, the Canadians are proud to support a number of non-profit organizations and events around BC.

Did you know your tickets could help a local family enjoy a Vancouver Canadians Baseball game?

Thanks to the strong support of our partners and fans who generously donate tickets to Canadians games, we work with the organizations Athletics 4 Kids and Kids Up Front to find local families to enjoy complimentary tickets to a baseball game at Scotiabank Field!

How's how you can help - if you have any extra Vancouver Canadians tickets for future games, Athletics 4 Kids and/or Kids Up Front will take those unused tickets and distribute them to local families, ensuring your tickets never go to waste. The Vancouver Canadians have helped more than 6,000 local children experience a Vancouver Canadians game through this program.

Out in the Community

Since Jake Kerr and Jeff Mooney purchased the Vancouver Canadians Baseball Club in 2007, the C's have partnered with The Salvation Army to distribute 100 turkeys to families in need each Thanksgiving weekend. These efforts have resulted in more than 900 local families receiving a festive holiday meal to enjoy with family and loved ones.

You'll see our enthusiastic, smiling staff volunteering their time at many local events, tournaments and festivals throughout the Lower Mainland year round. Whether the Canadians are taking part in city-wide events such as the annual Rogers Santa Claus Parade and Canucks Autism Sports Day, or donating funds to various charities through the sale of frosty A&W Root Beer Floats during our Family Fun Sundays, the Canadians are always looking to invest in our community.
