WelcomePack Launches Inspiring #ThankYouCanada Social Campaign to Commemorate Canada Day 2016

Participation Prizes Include Return Airline Tickets for 2 Within Canada and Special Edition 'Live Love Canada' T-Shirts

MARKHAM, ON--(Marketwired - June 21, 2016) - As Canada Day approaches and Canadians applaud our country's history, its values and its people, WelcomePack Canada, recognizing the profound feeling of thankfulness that binds us all together on this day, has launched a social campaign enabling all Canadians to say thank you to our beautiful country with #ThankYouCanada.

WelcomePack's #ThankYouCanada campaign reaches out to us all, encouraging us to remember a moment when we have felt a deep sense of gratitude to Canada for our achievements here. WelcomePack has evocatively captured these moments in an emotional video that led to messages, photos and videos being shared on the webpage welcomepackcanada.com/thankyoucanada.

Created by WelcomePack's agency Dyversity Communications, the campaign's central visual is that of a maple leaf bird, symbolically soaring over our land, and being joined by others in different vibrant colours. It is this diversity that makes Canada so beautiful and so distinctive.

The campaign will run till midnight July 1, 2016. To participate, visit the campaign page welcomepackcanada.com/thankyoucanada or post your entry on Facebook or Twitter using #ThankYouCanada. 1 lucky participant will be awarded return airline tickets for 2 from/to any destination within Canada. Participants can also share their posts among family and friends. The top 50 voted entries will receive a 'Live Love Canada' t-shirt that has been specially designed for the campaign.

Entries have been pouring in, as people share their stories and special Canadian moments. The touching emotions in the stories are posted on the contest page welcomepackcanada.com/thankyoucanada. Simply click on the 'VIEW ENTRIES & VOTE' link to see them.

"Canada is a land of immigrants. Some are new and settling in, others can trace back generations in this land. All of us have our #ThankYouCanada moments," says Albert Yue, President & CEO, WelcomePack Canada. "This Canada Day, we wanted to get everyone together in expressing their gratitude, making it an inspiring movement that would touch us all, from newcomers to multigenerational Canadians alike."
