Creative that excites, delights and connects with client target groups. That’s our mantra at the agency. So it’s icing on the cake that we also excited, delighted and connected with the judges at this year’s ICE Awards, Atlantic Canada’s celebration of great marketing creative.
Thank you for honouring C+C with 11 awards, the most of any Nova Scotia agency. Thank you to clients who demand exceptional work. Thank you to the C+C agency teams who make it happen.

You know what I remember, growing up in Halifax? The Halifax Mooseheads theme song. You know the one: Slap! Shot! Shoot! Score! You just can’t stop the Moose! It’s been ages since I saw one of those ads, but to this day, every so often, that song gets stuck in my head. With just 6 losses and 53 wins, the song was pretty much the theme of the season, for the Mooseheads.
Sunday was the final showdown. The Mooseheads battled it out against the Portland Winterhawks, Saskatoon. The final score was 6 – 4, naming Halifax the winners of the Memorial Cup for the first time ever.
First and foremost, we have to give huge congratulations to the Halifax entire team for their phenomenal victory. They are living proof that dedication and teamwork really does pay off.
Can we talk about Nathan MacKinnon’s title-clinching, open-net goal? After Portland had shaved Halifax’s lead to just one point in mere minutes, things were, well, let’s just say they were tense. 22 seconds left on the clock and, thanks to that goal, an insurmountable lead. MacKinnon says he may never score a bigger goal in his career. Keep your eyes on him. There is already NHL buzz surrounding the 17-year-old.
Thank you, to the Halifax Mooseheads, for bringing home the Memorial Cup for the very first time. Here’s to many more wins in the future!
