MONTREAL - True heroes are all around us.
That's one of many valuable lessons the world has learned during the COVID-19 pandemic.
For over 12 months, medical practitioners, workers providing essential services, and others on the frontlines have demonstrated incredible humanity while tirelessly serving their communities during this unprecedented health crisis.
So many faces have emerged to touch and inspire us with their efforts throughout these uncertain times, and they deserve our deepest respect and appreciation.
With that in mind, the Canadiens, in proud partnership with IGA, have created the "Hero Suite" at the Bell Centre, to help honor those heroes during Habs games this season.

A select group of frontline workers received a letter from Canadiens owner, President and CEO, Geoff Molson and Vice President, Marketing for IGA, Carl Pichette, thanking them for their service, and inviting each of them individually to take part in an exclusive experience that will allow them to be the sole fans in attendance at an upcoming Canadiens game - alongside their immediate family - in a luxury Bell Centre suite.

Along with this unique experience, each hero will receive an official Canadiens jersey and IGA is offering $1,000 in groceries redeemable at any of their stores.
No doubt the players will enjoy hearing their in-person cheers as much as they appreciate everything frontline workers have done and continue to do on behalf of their fellow citizens.
