Purolator resumes small business contest

Courier company Purolator has begun a promotion called the “True North Small Business Grant Contest.” This will be the second year the company has conducted this contest, which is intended to provide support to Canadian small businesses. Four winners will each receive $20,000 in cash and $500 in Purolator shipping credit, as well as $5,000 to be spent on community initiative of their choice. Participants can enter until May 31 by submitting a description of their business and how it improves its community.

“We've seen small business accounts grow dramatically over the last two years, with many taking advantage of new opportunities to expand, like moving to e-commerce service models,” said Stacey Cummings, marketing director at Purolator. “Last year, we received nominations from coast to coast, in a wide variety of industries including tech, hospitality, online retailers, non-profits and many more. This year we expect to further our reach, with nominations that continue to reflect all of the communities we serve.”
