Nordstrom Partnership

Each December, Nordstrom is proud to sponsor the Robson Square Ice Rink—it’s a can’t-miss Vancouver holiday tradition. Help us help kids in our community as we partner with BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Make a donation at the skate rental booth during the month of December, and together we can help open up new possibilities in children’s health care for kids and families from across the province.
