represents an increase of 5 percent over their 2012 result. In second
and third place by total 2013 sales volume were Quebec dealerships
Hyundai Gabriel (Montreal) and Hyundai de Mascouche who ended the year

registration fees. In 2013, Hyundai Canada and its network of 210
dealerships donated an estimated $1-million to provide grants for the
2013/2014 and 2014/2015 seasons.
Karl Subban, Hyundai Hockey Helpers Ambassador and father of Montreal
Canadiens Defenceman P.K. Subban, expressed his gratitude for the
dealership's efforts: "It's rewarding to see a local business giving
back to the community in such a profound manner. In addition to the
positive health benefits of physical activity, organized sport teaches
important lessons about teamwork, commitment, and the value of hard
work. Thanks to the efforts of dealerships like Mississauga Hyundai,
the HHH initiative is investing in future of children across Canada."
