Voting open for Canadians to choose their favourite small business
Canada Post's Tales of Triumph contest offers big prizes to small businesses
OTTAWA, ON, June 5, 2023 /CNW/ - Starting June 5, Canadians can vote for their favourite small business in Canada Post's fourth annual Tales of Triumph contest. The Canada's Choice category includes 15 finalists and the company that receives the most votes will win a $100,000 prize package. Voting is open until June 30 and takes place via Canada Post's Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn channels.
Created in 2020 to help support small businesses, the Tales of Triumph contest is open to Canadian companies with less than $5 million in annual gross sales. The contest lets small businesses share their stories of creativity and resiliency for a chance to win prizes such as credits for Canada Post Parcel, Smartmail Marketingtm services and paid advertising in local markets and national exposure.
The contest will have five winners. First, an external panel of judges will select five finalists per category. Then, of those 15 overall finalists, Canadians will vote for their favourite to determine the Canada's Choice winner, while Canada Post employees will vote for the Employee's Choice winner. Judges will then select one winner per category from the remaining finalists.
