Popular Canadian wellness program partners with private sector and broadens its impact mission
TORONTO, April 4, 2019 /CNW/ - Carrot Rewards, Canada's most popular wellness app today announced a further significant expansion of its mission and partnerships, as it continues to nudge well over a million Canadians towards living healthier lives.
Carrot is deepening its strategic private sector and NGO engagements in a growing effort to positively influence consumer behaviour. New partnerships with leading insurance and pharmaceutical firms are harnessing the unique engagement and power of this innovative platform to boost consumer education in important behavioural areas as diverse as road safety or respiratory health management. Some of Carrot's newest mission partners include Boehringer Ingelheim, The Lung Association and Onlia.
At the same time, the popular app is rapidly broadening its public impact work into the critically important area of civic wellness. More specifically, a key new mission element of the Carrot platform will be to educate Canadians on key immigration topics such as newcomer integration, transition support and access to a wide range of resources, from language skills training to financial literacy tools for new Canadians.
"Three short years into our accelerating journey, it is so rewarding for us all to see our relevance, recognition and impact spread in so many important directions," said Andreas Souvaliotis, Founder & CEO of Carrot Rewards. "We are changing lives for the better every day and we are constantly adding to our uniquely and proudly Canadian story."
Rodney Ghali, Assistant Cabinet Secretary at the Privy Council Office in the Government of Canada stated "I have had the pleasure of watching Carrot Rewards grow from an initial pilot project to an internationally recognized digital platform for promoting health. It represents a unique example of the power of innovative and authentic partnerships between the public and private sectors in our country."
