ALL ABOARD! VIA RAIL ENCOURAGES CANADIANS TO RECONNECT WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO CELEBRATE CANADA DAY
Montreal, June 21, 2022 – VIA Rail Canada (VIA Rail) is proud to team up once again with our long-time partners at Canadian Heritage as official sponsor of Canada Day 2022 and as the presenting sponsor of the National Canada Day Contest which encourages Canadians to reconnect with friends and family this summer.
“After a 2-year pause on in-person celebrations, these sponsorships highlight the joy we all feel to finally be able to reconnect with friends and family,” said Michael Acosta, Senior Director, Commercial Affairs. “As VIA Rail offers more travel options to Canadians just in time for the summer season, we want to encourage Canadians to get out and explore our beautiful country by train.”
The National Canada Day contest presented by VIA Rail Canada will offer two grand prizes of a train trip for four to a Canadian destination of the winner’s choice*.
VIA Rail is also delighted to be an official sponsor at the July 1st festivities in Ottawa at LeBreton Flats Park, where our popular mini train will be back after a two-year hiatus. The mini train will be available for children to enjoy from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. We hope to see you out in large numbers to celebrate with us and enjoy all the shows and activities taking place in Canada’s Capital Region. You can view the full program of activities here.
