Entrants will receive one (1) entry into the Prize Draw once they have completed and submitted the survey.   By entering this Prize Draw, Entrants give their express permission to be contacted by Sponsor via telephone, e-mail, and/or postal mail concerning this Prize Draw.

Any attempted form of Contest entry other than exactly as set out above is void and will not be accepted.  Sponsor will not acknowledge entries or correspond with Entrants.  Entrants must be the registered and authorized account holder of the account through which the Entry is made. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by the relevant service provider.  In the event of a dispute as to ownership of an entry, Entrant may be required to provide proof of ownership of the account used to enter the Prize Draw.  Entries may not be made by proxy or automated means such as by script, bot, macro or any other similar software or program.

  1. Prize: There is [ONE] (1) prize available to be won, subject to selected Entrants’ full compliance with these official Prize Draw rules (“Official Rules”). Each prize (“Prize”) consists of one (1) VISA gift card valued at $500 CAD. Prize is subject to any and all terms and conditions contained thereon.  Prize award will be drawn at random from the list of Eligible Entrants gathered throughout the duration of the Prize Draw period.  

No substitution, transfer or assignment of a Prize is permitted, except Sponsor may substitute another prize of approximately equal or greater value if the advertised Prize is unavailable for any reason.  Each Prize winner is solely responsible for any applicable and unspecified expenses in conjunction with acceptance/use of the Prize, including federal, provincial and local taxes.  All federal, provincial and/or local income and other taxes, if any, are the Prize winner’s sole responsibility. Each Prize is awarded “AS IS.”  Sponsor does not make or offer any warranty or guarantee, either express or implied (including, without limitation, quality, merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose) in connection with this Contest or the Prize. The difference in value of Prize as stated herein and value at time of Prize notification, if any, will not be awarded.

  1. Winner selection: Within approximately ten (10) days following the end of the Contest Period, a random draw will be conducted to select [ONE] (1) Entry from among all eligible entries received during the Prize Draw Period. 

Sponsor will notify the selected Entrant by email within fifteen (15) business days of the draw date. Selected Entrant will have two (2) business days from notification to accept the Prize by email and will be provided with contact information for Prize fulfillment at that time. Sponsor is not responsible for and shall not be liable for late, lost, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts to notify the winner. If a selected Entrant cannot be contacted or fails to respond within the allotted time, Sponsor reserves the right to void that entry and select another eligible Entrant for that Prize (and in the event that the subsequent selected Entrant cannot be contacted or fails to respond, a further Entrant will be selected, until a winner is determined, provided further that in the event that a winner is not determined after attempts have been made to contact three (3) Entrants, Sponsor may elect not to conduct any further redraws and not award such Prize).

Before being declared a Prize winner and eligible for a Prize, the selected Entrant must: (a) correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question to be administered by Sponsor, (b) have complied with, and remain in compliance with, these Official Rules, and (c) sign and deliver to the Sponsor, within five (5) days after the Sponsor’s request, a standard declaration and release form, which will include an affidavit of the Entrant’s compliance with these Official Rules, acceptance of the Prize as awarded, a publicity release, a liability release, and proof of identity, residency, age and other documentation.  If a selected Entrant fails to comply with all requirements in this paragraph, Prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate Entrant. 

The decisions of Sponsor are final and binding on all matters relating to this Prize Draw.  If within two  (2) days of first attempted notification any potential winner cannot be contacted at the e-mail address or account submitted with the Entry for any reason, if a potential winner is contacted and does not respond as directed, refuses the Prize, does not comply with the above conditions, or is ineligible to accept the Prize, or if Prize is returned as undeliverable, the Prize will be forfeited and an alternate potential winner may be selected from amongst all remaining eligible entries received.

Odds of winning a Prize depend on the number of eligible Entries received during the Prize Draw Period. 

  1. Permission to Use Name and Likeness: Except where prohibited by law, participation in the Prize Draw constitutes permission from Entrant for Sponsor and its affiliates and their agencies to use Entrant’s name (first and last), likeness and/or other indicia of persona, without notice or compensation for purposes of advertising and trade, unless prohibited by law.
