Agnico Eagle is proud to have partnered with the community of Rankin Inlet on the opening of the brand new Agnico Eagle Arena which is now open for all members of the community to enjoy, whether it is by participating in physical activities on the volleyball courts and skating on the hockey rink or cheering from the stands.

The official unveiling of the arena name and our partnership with the community took place on October 6th, 2021 as part of the Rankin Inlet Family Day.

At Agnico Eagle, we firmly believe that a healthy, active lifestyle is one of the best investments we can make, in ourselves and for our communities. Beyond that, we also know exactly how much hockey means to the community. Through this naming sponsorship, Agnico Eagle provided the funds necessary to ensure fees remain as low as possible for local teams and activities, allowing the Hamlet to focus on what matters most: their people. This partnership will make the arena and its facilities accessible for all Rankinmiut who want to play any number of sports or for parents, friends and elders who want to watch their loved ones and cheer on their hometown team!

Pujjuut Kusugak, Agnico Eagle’s Director of Nunavut Affairs says, “We hope that this new partnership with the community will allow everyone to create memories that they’ll cherish for years to come while taking part in sports and activities we all know and love. Qujannamiik taipkua ikajulauqtut.”
