The Contest is held in the Province of Quebec by the Montreal Canadiens (hereinafter: the "Contest Organizer"). It starts at noon on November 6, 2018 (Eastern time: ET) and ends at 11h59 on October 31, 2019 (ET) (hereinafter: the "Contest period").
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. The Contest is open to Club 1909 members who reside in Quebec and who have at least one child that is a member of the Canadiens Fan Club. This Contest is not open to (i) employees of Scotiabank or the Canadiens, or of their advertising and promotional agencies as well as their mandataries, nor those of their affiliated companies, subsidiaries, associated companies, and (ii) persons residing under the same roof as those mentioned above in (i), and (iii) members of the immediate family of the persons mentioned under (i) and (ii) above. For the purpose of the present Contest Rules, immediate family refers to the father, mother, brother, daughter, common law and legal spouse.
How to Enter
To enter the Contest, the parent must be a 1909 Club member and register his/her child either in the basic Canadiens Fan Club package or in one of the other packages (newborn, ages 1-4 or ages 5-12) by following the procedure to this effect during the Contest period which appears on the website. Certain fees apply to paying Fan Club subscriptions. Once subscription is completed, the person must then register in the Contest. He/she can enter on the www.fanclub.canadiens.com/en/contests. If the person is not already a Club 1909 member and therefore cannot register his/her child in the Fan Club, he/she must first open a Club 1909 account in order to register in the Contest. The Contest will be advertised on the Montreal Canadiens Facebook page and in the Canadiens Fan Club newsletter. By clicking on the link found in the Facebook posts and in the Contest advertisements, they will be redirected to the Contest page.
If your child is already a Canadiens Fan Club member, you can proceed directly to register for the Contest. However, as all Canadiens Fan Club subscriptions end on June 30 of the year, you will have to register your child again for the package of your choice for the 2019-2020 season in order to be able to continue to participate in the Contest as of July 1, 2019.
Each monthly draw is independent from the others and entries for each draw will not be carried forward to the next monthly draw. Therefore, entry in the first draw only counts for that draw and so forth. The person who wishes to enter many draws must follow to procedure applicable to everyone of these draws.
Odds of winning. By entering the Contest as a purchaser of a paying package among those mentioned above, you get two entries in the next monthly draw when you enter. When you enter as a no fee package subscriber, then you get one entry in the next monthly draw. However, in that case, you can get an additional entry by 1) sending a 50 words or more email to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining why you would like to win a prize; 2) indicating in your email the name of two of the products offered by Scotiabank and, 3) indicating therein your name, surname, Club 1909 membership number, complete address including your postal code, phone number including your area code, email address as well as the name of one of your children whose Canadiens Fan Club account is linked to your Club 1909 account and who could benefit from the prize. Your email must be received no later than 11h59m59s, on the last day of the month which precedes the month in which the next draw is to be held in order to be eligible for that draw. Your email will be verified by the Contest Organizer and if it is compliant, you will get a second entry for the next draw. N.B. The two Scotiabank products identified in your email must be different from those mentioned in your other emails, as the case may be.
Limit. For each draw, there is a limit of one (1) registration in the Contest per Club 1909 member and per child whose Canadiens Fan Club account is linked to his/her Club 1909 account. Each entry is valid for one draw only.
Prizes to be won. In all, there are thirty-six (36) prizes to be won, each consisting of a $1,000 deposit in a Scotiabank Registered Education Saving Plan.
Random draws. There will be a monthly draw for three (3) of the above described prizes on the first Monday of each month starting December 3, 2018 up to November 4, 2019 from among all entries received within the preceding month and no later than 11h59m59s on the last day of the month that precedes the month in which the draw is held. All draws will take place around 2 p.m. at 1275 St-Antoine West (3rd floor) in Montreal. For example, if you enter on May 3, 2019, your entry will count for the June draw and not for the draw to be held on Monday May 6 since only entries made during the month of April will be valid for that draw.
Winner selection. If the entrant selected at random cannot be reached within three (3) business days following the draw date or if the Contest Organizer determines (at its sole discretion) that the selected entrant does not meet all the Contest requirements as set in these Rules, another draw will take place. This procedure will be followed until an eligible entrant is declared the prize winner. To be so declared, the entrant must confirm his/her acceptance and compliance with the Contest Rules and release the Montreal Canadiens, Club 1909, Scotiabank, the National Hockey League and member teams, the National Hockey League Players' Association, their respective employees, directors, persons in charge, officers, affiliated companies, parent companies, representatives, subsidiaries, professional advisers and advertising and promotional agencies (collectively the "Released Parties") from any and all liability in connection with or arising out of this Contest, including, without limitation, any liability regarding acceptance or use of the prize awarded and any tax implications whatsoever, conduct of the Contest and selection of winner. Winner will have to sign a declaration form (the "Declaration form") that he/she will receive by email from the Contest Organizer on the same day and he/she must email back a scanned version of it to the Contest Organizer within five (5) business days following its receipt. The fact of being declared a winner is dependent upon signing the Declaration form and is also dependent on the person correctly answering, without assistance, the mathematical skill-testing question appearing on the said form. The winner must confirm having met all eligibility requirements as set in these Rules and also confirm the name of the child to the benefit of which the amount must be deposited in an RESP as well as the relationship with the child.
