In an exciting opportunity to celebrate and uplift small businesses across the country, Canadians now have the chance to cast their votes in Canada Post’s highly anticipated fourth annual Tales of Triumph contest.
The contest’s Canada’s Choice category boasts an impressive lineup of 15 finalists, with the coveted grand prize of a remarkable $100,000 prize package awaiting the business that garners the most votes.
Initiated in 2020 as a means to bolster support for small enterprises, the Tales of Triumph contest graciously welcomes Canadian companies with annual gross sales that do not exceed $5 million.
This contest allows small businesses to showcase their narratives of creativity and tenacity, all for the opportunity to win an array of enticing prizes, including Canada Post Parcel credits, Smartmail Marketing services, as well as paid advertising in both local and national markets, offering invaluable exposure.
Throughout the contest, five outstanding winners will emerge victorious. First, an external panel of judges will select five finalists per category, setting the stage for the next phase.
Among the 15 overall finalists, it is the Canadian public who will ultimately decide the recipient of the prestigious Canada’s Choice award, while the dedicated employees of Canada Post will have their say in determining the Employee’s Choice champion.
In the final stage, the panel of judges will deliberate to crown one victor from the remaining finalists in each category, thus completing the journey of the Tales of Triumph contest.
