EWC's Mascot Name Contest Winner

Encounters with Canada (EWC) is proud to announce that its new little puppy mascot now has a name – Foxy – in honour of the iconic “Terry Fox” for whom our residential complex is also named.

A great number of suggestions were received, thanks to the creativity of the entrants who submitted their suggestions to the "EWC Name EWC's Mascot” contest. The winning name was chosen both for its originality and for how well it reflected the personality of the female miniature Harlequin poodle.

EWC sincerely thanks all those who entered the contest. The winning name was submitted by:

Benoit Bourdeau, an EWC teacher-monitor since 2002 from North Bay, Ontario

M. Bourdeau will receive a framed picture of the puppy, a t-shirt, and an EWC pin. Congratulations to Benoit Bourdeau!
