A bit about Welcome Wagon…
Welcome Wagon has been Canada’s Neighbourhood Tradition since 1930. It was founded in Memphis, Tennessee, but has been Canadian Management-owned since 1979. It takes its name from the Conestoga wagons of frontier days when settlers would bring supplies to greet passing wagon trains and encourage them to settle in their community.
Aurora was selected to be Welcome Wagon's 2009 Community of the Year for the Ontario Region in the 35,000 to 60,000 population category. This award recognizes that Aurora’s Welcome Wagon programs have excellent participation by the business community, a high ratio of families visited and good civic involvement with Welcome Wagon services.
Welcome Wagon is now Canada’s largest and most respected greeting service operating in over 500 communities throughout the country. Anyone interested in arranging for a visit can contact 1-866-873-9913 or visit www.welcomewagon.ca
