There is a limit of one (1) Prize per person, per contest. Prizes will be delivered within 2-3 weeks following receiving the signed document from the winner.

 

Eligible Winner selection process

Within (2) business days of the close of the applicable Contest Period for each Contest (each, a “Draw Date”) in Toronto, ON at approximately 9 a.m. ET, for each available Prize one (1) eligible entrant will be selected by random draw from among all eligible Entries submitted and received during the applicable Contest Period in accordance with these Rules and the applicable Post. The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Entries submitted and received during the applicable Contest Period in accordance with these Rules and the applicable Post.

 

Eligible winner notification process

The Sponsor or its designated representative will make a maximum of (1) attempt to contact an eligible winner via the Social Platform. If an eligible winner cannot be contacted within forty-eight (48) hours of the applicable Draw Date, or if there is a return of any notification as undeliverable; then he/she may, in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor, be disqualified (and, if disqualified, will forfeit all rights to the applicable Prize) and the Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion and time permitting, to randomly select an alternate eligible entrant from among the remaining eligible Entries submitted and received in accordance with these Rules in accordance with the applicable procedure outlined above (in which case the foregoing provisions of this section shall apply to such newly selected eligible winner).
