                RBC NEW TITLE SPONSOR

                OF THE DARTMOUTH 4-PAD

            RBC and the Halifax Regional Municipality announced the bank is investing $1-million
            into the future of the Dartmouth 4-Pad by becoming the new naming rights partner.

            The new partnership includes the renaming of the facility to RBC Centre, as well as a
            commitment to programming, such as clinics with RBC Olympians and RBC Family Days,
            which will enhance the community’s involvement and participation at the arena.

            Newly opened in September of 2017, the facility has quickly become a staple in uniting
            the community.

            The state-of-the art complex includes three NHL sized ice pads and an Olympic sized pad.
            The facility offers ample change rooms for both the rinks and adjacent outdoor fields, a
            spacious and bright foyer, a large multi-purpose room, a sport retail store, and food and
            beverage services.

            The facility has experienced an estimated 1.5-million visits by the community since it
            opened just over a year ago, making the newly named RBC Centre a hub for sports

            “The RBC Centre brings together people from across our region, and is an important part
            of our shared commitment with RBC to invest in healthy, livable communities,” said
            Mayor Mike Savage.

            RBC has been standing behind Canadian athletes since 1947. In the 70 years since then,
            the bank has supported a wide range of programs with the goal of helping amateur
            athletes achieve their potential – whether that is reaching the Olympic podium, or at the
            grassroots level through community initiatives that allow access to sport for youth.

            “RBC is proud to support the continued investment the municipality is making into
            recreational facilities and the positive impact this has on local youth,” said Roger
            Howard, RBC’s Regional President, Atlantic Canada. “The RBC Centre is a space that helps
            kids and families create memories together, develop friendships, and build the founda-
            tion for a healthy active lifestyle.”

            The naming rights partnership includes the investment by RBC of $100,000 per year for
            10 years.
