TORONTO - Kraft Canada is cancelling its Hockeyville program this year due to the NHL lockout.

The company is going to instead give $1 million to Hockey Canada affiliated minor hockey associations.

Kraft's Hockeyville program is an annual competition that rewards Canadian communities for their involvement in their local arenas.

Stirling-Rawdon, Ont., was this year's winner and was to host a pre-season game before the lockout. That game has been postponed to the 2013-14 season.

Under the new program, Kraft will recognize the top five volunteers and award their hockey associations with $100,000, while 20 other volunteers will win $20,000 for their associations.

Kraft will also give $100,000 to Hockey Canada for learn-to-skate programs.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
