Thank You to the Attendees of the 2022 CANS Home Depot Pro De-Icer!

On Friday, May 13, the 2022 CANS Home Depot Pro De-Icer kicked off in downtown Halifax at the Halifax Convention Centre. Nearly 1,600 attendees gathered for our first De-Icer in over two years. The evening was well worth the wait with exceptional fine dining, musical entertainment, and networking opportunities.

Guests enjoyed their choice of poached lobster, roast chicken with molasses-marinated pork loin, or grilled squash steak with herbed tofu centre — yum! Not to mention an incredible selection of hors d’ouevres, mussels, sweets and refreshments.

Our guests also boogied the night away thanks to the musical contributions of a local favourite, R&B funk band, The Mellotones!
