Following on the heels of a successful inaugural WelcomePack Canada program that reached 30,000 new Canadian immigrants in 2013-14, the company has unveiled its 2015 WelcomePack which is being distributed free of cost to newcomers who landed in Canada on or after January 1, 2013.

Centre, Indian Rainbow Community Services, SAFSS, Peel Multicultural Council, Toronto District School Board, and Peel District School Board, among others.

As part of its welcome to Canada initiative, the WelcomePack program connects newcomers with Canadian brands and local businesses, to the benefit of both. Over 30 leading Canadian brands are part of this newcomer welcome program, including RBC, Buick, Unilever, Chatr Mobile, General Mills, TFI Foods, Tridel, McCormick Canada, McMaster University and Humber College.

This unique and innovative newcomer program goes beyond the attractive gift box filled with products and gifts from the participating brands. WelcomePack Canada also publishes a magazine that provides helpful information for newcomers on topics like jobs, housing, schools, healthcare, finances and commuting as well as redeemable special offer coupons. The new company website (www.welcomepackcanada.com) provides helpful articles and advice to newcomers to fast track their settling in and acculturation to Canadian living. The website also serves as a hub for newcomers to find out about the events and information workshops organized for them by the newcomer settlement services agencies in Ontario.

This year WelcomePack Canada introduced a co-branded Savings Plus card with CorporatePlus Club enabling newcomers to benefit from unlimited savings at over 200 retail locations in the GTA, including more than 100 restaurants. The company also partnered with Perkopolis Canada to offer newcomers exclusive access to various discounted products and services, including: theatre, hotels, attractions, movies, shopping, travel & much more.

"Through the WelcomePack Canada program we want newcomers to experience a memorable welcome to their new home country. We also add value by delivering access to year-round savings and insightful information to help them settle in" says Andrew Srinarayan, Vice President, WelcomePack Canada Inc.
