WelcomePack Canada Announces the Launch of 5,000 Free Gift Boxes for New Immigrants to Mark the 'Toronto Newcomer Day' Celebrations

More Than 40 Canadian Brands Now Part of This Groundbreaking 'Welcome to Canada' Initiative That has Already Touched Over 45,000 New Immigrants

MARKHAM, ON--(Marketwired - May 24, 2016) - Toronto Newcomer Day 2016 celebrations will be taking place today, Tuesday May 24, at City Hall. As part of the festivities, Nathan Phillips Square will offer free, family-friendly activities and entertainment to welcome and celebrate the contributions of newcomers to Toronto. As an ardent supporter of newcomers to Canada, WelcomePack chose this occasion to launch its next phase of reaching out to newcomers to Canada.

Now in its third year, WelcomePack Canada, along with more than 40 participating Canadian brands and over 60 newcomers' settlement services centers, has been busy welcoming new immigrants with its iconic gift box filled with products, an informative magazine, special offers and savings of immediate value to newcomers. Since the launch of this program in 2013, 45,000 newcomers have benefited from this 'Welcome To Remember,' with the company estimating to reach 15,000 more by this year-end.

The WelcomePack program continues to enhance the settling in experience of newcomers, well beyond the initial welcome gift pack. Through informative articles, contests, social media engagements and its 'Happily Ever After in Canada' short story collection, the company accelerates new immigrants' acculturation to the Canadian way of life.

As Albert Yue, President of WelcomePack Canada reminisces, "Canada is a wonderful land, welcoming new immigrants to her shores for decades. Following her example, WelcomePack was created to be a brand ambassador, welcoming new immigrants and introducing Canada's leading brands to them. Our mission: to give newcomers to Canada, a Welcome To Remember."

If you have landed in Canada as a Permanent Resident in 2014, 2015 or 2016, pick up your free WelcomePack gift box today!
