MARKHAM– For generations, Canada has been welcoming people from all over the world to her shores. This Canada Day, WelcomePack Canada created a platform for the nation to get together and proclaim their love for Canada by clicking the ‘I Love Canada’ button on WelcomePack Canada.com/My Canada. The goal is to generate 50,000 ‘loves’ for Canada by July 1, Canada’s 148th birthday. The counter has already started rolling as the love pours in.
Visitors to the site are also enjoying and sharing a specially created Canada Day eBook called ‘I Love Canada’, a story that weaves together Canada’s history, geography, achievements, and values, leaving one with a deep appreciation of belonging to this great land. An inspiring eCard applauding the values Canada stands for – freedom, peace, love for nature, and love of diversity, is being sent on as Canada Day greetings. There is also a ‘My Canada Contest’ with ‘Canada Rocks’ sippers and special limited edition Canada Flag coin sets to be won.
“Canada is a wonderful land that attracts people from all over the world. Whether we have come here recently, or been here for generations, this country deserves our love and loyalty,” says Andrew Srinarayan, Vice President, WelcomePack Canada Inc.
