Andrew Ference

NHL Hockey Player

"The secret to success is being able to move on."

Andrew Ference is the Founder of November Project Canada, an Ex-NHL hockey player, and is currently responsible for Social Impact, Growth and Legislative Affairs at the NHL.

He also has pretty strong emotions towards waste and inefficiencies. He has studied Corporate Sustainability and Innovation at Harvard and is a partner at HarvestPort Capital, a venture capital fund aimed at supporting sustainable agricultural technology.

Since there were still a couple of spare hours in the week, Andrew also took a position with the Edmonton Economic Development Corporation helping to stoke the entrepreneurial spirit in his home city to further cement its ranking as the best place in the world.

At 37 years of age, he still listens to the old punk rock of his youth and cannot bring himself to ditch his Doc Marten boots. An avid seeker of “King of The Mountain” segments on his numerous bicycles, he still finds time to be a Dad of two girls (Ava & Stella) and husband to another great girl (Krista).
