The Copper Jackets are the official corporate ambassadors of the Edmonton Oilers. Building upon a sense of pride and personal commitment for Edmonton, the Copper Jackets are a proactive group of business leaders in the community. They are dedicated to strengthening support for the Edmonton Oilers Hockey Club throughout Northern Alberta. Their members have diverse backgrounds but they all share a common passion for the Oilers, Edmonton and Northern Alberta.
Copper Jackets are business people, as well as Oilers fans, who understand the full value of having the NHL in Edmonton. Their goal is to see the Oilers thrive commercially and to compete at the highest level in the NHL. Achieving this goal will help bring a great amount of publicity and reward to all of Edmonton and its area businesses. Members are volunteers; each doing what he/she can to strengthen the Oilers commercial base of operations by leveraging their connections with their business peers. The Edmonton Oilers Hockey Club supports these individuals through various marketing and administrative services. New members are always welcome.
In addition to their commercial goals, the Copper Jackets work year-round to spread goodwill and give back to the community. Their luncheon in support of the Christmas Bureau raises over $100,000 annually; and they are also strong supporters of the Reading…Give It a Shot program.
