It will be an honor to welcome the world of hockey to our home, in Rimouski, in 2025, and to promote our region throughout Canada and the United States. I would like to thank the selection committee for its confidence and, at the same time, congratulate the Cataractes de Shawinigan organization for its candidacy.

The real work begins

“Now the real work begins for us to ensure an event that meets expectations. We have a special thought for our fans, the best junior hockey fans in the country. We all look forward to welcoming you to our land of champions in May 2025,” added Alexandre Tanguay.

Work needed at the Colosseum

The Rimouski municipal council authorized the settlement of a loan totaling $4.6 million for the improvement of the Colisée Financière Sun Life in preparation for the presentation of the Memorial Cup.

“We must first redo the moldings and the bay windows. It is also necessary to place the two players’ benches on the same side of the ice in order to meet a requirement of the Canadian Hockey League. We also need to replace our indicator board which dates from 2009. Océanic will contribute to financing the board. Finally, we will build 12 new boxes. We are aware of the increasing operating costs for junior teams and the presence of boxes allows us to generate additional revenue,” mentioned Mayor Guy Caron.

The year 2025 will mark the 25e anniversary of the only Memorial Cup conquest in Océanic history, in 2000. Captain Jonathan Beaulieu and future two-time Stanley Cup champion Brad Richards were the leaders of this team. They both accepted the honorary co-presidency of the 2025 tournament.
