Contest for Canadians – Score one FREE night stay at any Delta hotel or Resort!

Hey-oh! I’m extremely excited to be hosting my first contest on I Backpack Canada. Depending on how this one turns out, you may see more of these in the near future! Today, I’m giving away One Free Night’s stay at ANY Delta Hotel or Resort! You’ll have the opportunity to hang out like a rockstar (no Keith Moon shenanigans though please!), and sleep in some of the worlds most awesome beds!


Delta Hotels can be found all across Canada, so whether you’re hanging out on the West Coast beaches, touring through the Rockies, partying in the prairies, or pretending to be Drake in downtown Toronto, you shouldn’t have a problem tracking one down.

When it comes to entering contests, I can’t be bothered with long cumbersome surveys and such. So in an effort to keep it quick and simple, here’s how to win:

Guess my favourite Canadian animal!

Step 1: Take a guess & Leave your entry in the comments below
Step 2: Tweet Out: ”Guess @ibackpackcanada’s favourite Canadian animal & win one night at any @DeltaHotelsLTD or Resort! #Contest!”

  • If you’re not on twitter, head over to my Facebook Page and leave a comment on my wall


  • Must be a legal Canadian citizen (sorry internationals, next time!)
  • Must be age of legal majority in your Canadian province
  • Contest closes November 11, 2011 at 11:59am ADT (Atlantic Daylight Time).
  • Entries that have guessed correctly will be in the finals. A winner will then be chosen at random.

Are you a contest junkie?

Want a chance at something even bigger?! Of coarse you do. Head over to the Delta Hotels Facebook page to enter in their “Delta Difference” contest. Winner of that particular contest scores a weekend getaway for two, valued at $1,295!

Let the guessing begin! 

Update: Congrats goes out to Seattle Dredge, she is the lucky winner of one night at any Delta Hotel or Resort. For those of you who are dying to know, my favourite Canadian animal is the Polar Bear. Several people guessed correctly, those that guessed right were chosen at random using Big thanks goes out to everyone who entered, and to the kind folks at Delta Hotels for sponsoring this contest.
