    14,000 New Immigrants Receive Valuable Gifts And Offers From 45 Leading Canadian Brands Through WelcomePack Canada

    From consumer products and services, to real estate and banking, to telecommunications and transport, to education, media and more, these gifts and offers cover many of your settling in needs. Having reached its mid-term benchmark of 14,000 packs distributed, the WelcomePack program aims to deliver 30,000 free gift boxes that provide newcomers with a 'Welcome to Remember' every year.

    New immigrants, 18 years and above who have landed in Canada after September 1, 2011 are eligible to pick up this free welcome gift pack.

    Further more, the program evolves into a rewarding relationship. WelcomePack recipients are actively engaged all year round with helpful tips and information on various aspects of living in Canada, through a cutting-edge CRM system that delivers customized content. The ongoing information and offers are accessible to them through a designated member portal. In addition, they can also participate in activities for chances to win prizes.

    WelcomePack recently launched its social media presence on Facebook, Twitter and Sina Weibo, to provide a platform for new immigrants to engage and share their experiences of settling in Canada.

    In a survey conducted with WelcomePack recipients, an overwhelming 93% of respondents appreciated the program, products, offers and information being delivered.

    The program's popularity and awareness has steadily increased throughout the year and its network of distribution points has expanded across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). In addition, weekend distribution at key retail and event locations have been activated to make it easier for newcomers to pick up their free WelcomePack; all they need to do is bring along their PR cards to validate their eligibility to collect this valuable and attractive gift pack.
