Bank of Nova Scotia has halted its sponsorship of Hockey Canada amid allegations that it failed to report an alleged sexual-assault committed by its players.

A woman filed a lawsuit alleging that eight hockey players assaulted her after a Hockey Canada Foundation golf event in 2018, according to court documents filed in April.
