There are over 40,000 Canadian Forces community members in Manitoba and the no-cost Canadian Forces Appreciation Program offers an opportunity for tourism providers to reach this community. Manitoba businesses can become partners of the program, offering discounts and special offers to the Canadian Forces members of the program, as well as creating positive public exposure on a national level and improving the day to day life of a family of the Canadian Forces.
As travel trends show that Canadians are travelling within Canada as opposed to traveling outside our borders, the Canadian Forces Appreciation Program offers partners the ability to leverage the captive Canadian audience and advertise directly to the Canadian Military community at absolutely no cost. To date, the program has developed international and national partnerships in the categories of Shops, Services, Accommodations, Attractions, Recreation, Entertainment, Dining, Transportation, and Travel, with national brands such as Costco, BMW / MINI, Old Navy, Cineplex, Empire Theatres.
To become a partner in this program, fill in the agreement and return it to Raewen Pappas along with a 150 word explanation about your business and a logo. The supplied information will be translated and posted on the programís website. For more information, contact Raewen Pappas at 613-943-4329.
