Local Sponsorship

Local Sponsorship

Three premier organizations – the Ontario Provincial Police, The McLennan Group and Canada’s Association for the Fifty-Plus (CARP) – invite your company to become a local sponsor of Drive Wise, a free driver refresher program for mature Canadians. Over the years, Drive Wise has rolled through dozens of cities, towns and villages in Ontario providing thousands of seniors with key tips on how to keep safe behind the wheel and retain their independence.

Drive Wise wants a few good corporate sponsors with a vision for their local community. This active, independent and financially comfortable demographic, which controls 80% of Canada’s wealth, is the fastest growing age group in Canada. Your company will receive top billing as Canada’s seniors look to purchase goods and services from companies they can trust.

Through your support detachments that adopt the Drive Wise approach to safe driving will receive educational and presentation materials, content training and logistics support. As a Drive Wise sponsor, your message will be taken on the road in front of Canada’s fastest growing demographic.

Corporations who join the Drive Wise team locally will:

 Have access to an intimate setting for reaching Canada’s fastest-growing consumer group. The 50-plus group is at the height of their net worth and controls 80% of Canada’s wealth.

 Have the opportunity to distribute corporate information and product samples at the Drive Wise information table located at Drive Wise presentations in your sponsorship area.

 Benefit from the Drive Wise media relations and publicity campaign, which will list all supporters.

 Be mentioned and thanked as a corporate sponsor prior to the commencement of each Drive Wise presentation in your sponsorship area.

 Receive web site recognition with hotlinks on the Drive Wise web site, which is hosted on the www.50plus.com, one of the most active web sites in Canada.
