ABOUT THE TD WELCOME TO CANADA PROGRAM:
Telelatino Network Inc. (Telelatino), Canada’s most influential multilingual media company, and home of TLN Television and the Spanish-language Univision Canada channels, announces that TD Bank Group (TD) has signed on for a second year as the title sponsor of the network’s annual TD Welcome to Canada Literacy Program following the success of the inaugural launch in 2016.
Honouring Canada’s 150th milestone birthday, the TD Welcome to Canada program will make 1500 books available to young newcomers, particularly those of Hispanic descent. Books will be distributed to selected schools, community centres, and libraries across the country to help foster an understanding of our home and native land, including language, Canadian geography, history and multiculturalism.
The program reflects Telelatino’s commitment to sharing and showcasing the vibrant Latino culture and to connecting Spanish-speaking Canadians with the passions that make their culture unique – from food to music, drama to sport.
