How it started in Winnipeg?

During that time, the box was only available to Ontario residents, who immigrated to Canada as PR in 2013 to 2015. Because of the overwhelming response of the people who saw this post, WelcomePack Canada Inc. and Cristina Licup (known as Momsie to her online friends and blog followers) decided to collaborate and bring this special gift packs to Winnipeg residents (and nearby cities in Manitoba).
