MONTREAL, May 11, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Yellow Pages (TSX: Y), a leading provider of digital media and marketing solutions for small businesses, announced today that it will be crediting the accounts of all its business customers located in Fort McMurray – retroactive to May 3, 2016 – in light of the recent wildfires, which resulted in mandatory evacuation. These credits will be applied on a rolling basis each month until impacted customers are in a position to provide direction on how they would like to proceed with their advertising.
Customers from Fort McMurray wishing to cancel their advertising or marketing contracts moving forward can do so upon request with no penalty.
The thoughts of all Yellow Pages employees across Canada are with those affected by the events in Alberta. The company has made a $25,000 donation to Red Cross relief efforts, is encouraging employees to donate, and has donated an additional $10,000 in digital advertising inventory to promote the Red Cross donations portal.
