Contest Prize. Enter for a chance to win the following prize:
A Model 3 standard plus rear-wheel drive pearl white Tesla (approximate retail value: up to $55,000 and not less than $52,990) and free parking for one year (“Tesla”). Free parking will commence at the time the Tesla prize is awarded and the Leaseholder brings the Tesla home. One parking space at a monthly cost of $150 per month will be assigned to the winning leaseholder who is awarded the Tesla prize. The $150 parking fee will be deducted from the total amount owing by the leaseholder on the first of each month. The winners assume any and all liability for any injury or damage caused, or claimed to be caused, by entering, participating in this Contest or the use or redemption of the prize. The prizes or any portion of the prize cannot be combined with other discounts, promotions, or special offers. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute an alternate prize of equal or greater value if the advertised prize is unavailable at the time of award. Sponsor also reserves the right to award a Tesla or the equivalent cash value in the form of a cheque to the winner of the Tesla prize.
Odds of Winning. The odds of winning the Tesla depend on the number of eligible entries received before the contest closes, but are limited to a maximum of 200 entries.
Skill-Testing Question. Selected Entrants will be required, as a condition of winning a prize, to correctly answer, without assistance of any kind, the Sponsor’s time-limited, mathematical skill-testing question to be administered by completing the question on the Declaration of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release provided to Selected Entrants.
Winner Selection and Confirmation.
Tesla. The Tesla draw date will take place two business days following the Electric Vehicle Contest End Date (Electric Vehicle Draw Date).
The draws will take place at 11 Ordnance Street, Toronto, Ontario. The Sponsor, or an employee, agent or other representative of the Sponsor, will conduct a random draw from all eligible entries received before Contest End Date and select the potential winners (Selected Entrants). Selected Entrants will be deemed winners if they meet all of the eligibility criteria set out in these Contest Rules. If a Selected Entrant does not meet the eligibility criteria, they will be disqualified and will not receive a prize and another entrant will be selected by way of a random draw from the remaining eligible entries.
Before being declared a winner, Selected Entrants will be required to: (i) be a current Leaseholder in good standing; (ii) correctly answer the Sponsor’s skill-testing question; (iii) sign and return the Sponsor’s Declaration of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release form (Winner Release); and (iv) comply with all other Contest Rules, all in the sole discretion of Sponsor.
If a Selected Entrant meets the eligibility criteria to win the Tesla and is one of two or more leaseholders named on the lease agreement for that rental unit, then the cash value of the Tesla prize (up to $55,000) will be divided equally between the tenants named on the lease agreement who are at least the age of majority in their province or territory of residence. If a Selected Entrant is the only tenant on the lease agreement, meets the eligibility criteria to win the Tesla and does not have a valid Driver’s License in their province or territory of residence, then the cash value of the Tesla prize (up to $55,000) will be paid to the Selected Entrant upon meeting the eligibility criteria. If the cash value of the Tesla prize is to be paid to a Selected Entrant, the value of the prize will be the value of the Tesla exclusive of taxes that would have been applicable on the Tesla purchase.
The Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to substitute any Prize or a component thereof with a prize of equal or greater retail value, including, without limitation, but at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion, a cash award.
Selected Entrants will be notified within five (5) business days of the Draw Date and will be contacted by phone or email as provided at the time of entry into the Contest. Up to three (3) attempts will be made to contact Selected Entrants, within five (5) business days following the draw. The eligibility of a Selected Entrant that cannot be reached within this timeframe and who has not replied to an email notifying the Selected Entrant of their eligibility as a potential winner in order to confirm they meet the required eligibility, or a Selected Entrant who has not, does not or cannot accept a prize, may be forfeited and a new Selected Entrant will be selected by random draw, in the Sponsor’s sole discretion.
A signed copy of the Sponsor’s Winner Release must be received by the Sponsor no later than seven (7) days of notifying the Selected Entrant of their eligibility as a potential winner. Sponsor is not responsible for the failure for any reason whatsoever of a Selected Entrant to receive notification or for the Sponsor to receive a Selected Entrant’s response.
Disputes regarding identity of entrant: If the identity of a Selected Entrant is disputed, the entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the individual assigned to the email address entered at the time of entry. Each Selected Entrant may be required to provide proof that they are the person associated with a selected entry.
Release and Indemnification. All winners must sign the Sponsor’s Winner Release to: (i) confirm compliance with all Contest Rules; (ii) agree to accept prizes as awarded; (iii) release, discharge and hold harmless the Sponsor, its departments and agencies, parent, related and affiliated companies, subsidiaries, franchisees, advertising and promotional agencies, counsel, marketing partners, and each of their respective directors, officers, employees, shareholders, successors, sponsors, partners, licensees, subsidiaries, agents, artists, advisors, assignees, and all others associated with the administration, development, and execution of the Contest (Released Parties) from any and all manner of action, cause of action, claim or demand, loss or injury, or any suit, debt, covenant, contract, including legal fees and expenses, whatsoever, including but not limited to, claims based on negligence, breach of contract and fundamental breach, failure of any third-party contractor or supplier used in connection with any aspect of the Contest to perform or deliver any goods or services, or any act of God or any other event beyond the Released Parties’ control, any dissatisfaction of any kind by a winner with any aspect of the Contest or any prize, liability for physical injury, death, or property damage which the entrants, guests or other third parties, their heirs, successors or assigns have, might have or could have suffered, by reason of or arising out of the entrant’s participation in the Contest and/or in connection with the acceptance and/or exercise by the entrant of prizes as awarded; and (iv) indemnify the Released Parties against any loss, damage or expense, including legal fees, that any of the Released Parties may suffer or incur as a result of any non-compliance by entrants (or their parent(s) or legal guardian(s), as applicable) with any of the Contest Rules or participation in the Contest and/or in connection with the acceptance and/or exercise by an entrant (or their parent(s) or legal guardian(s), as applicable), use or misuse of a prize, or any travel related thereto.
The Sponsor is not responsible for: (i) incorrect or inaccurate entry information that may affect a person’s ability to participate in the Contest or be awarded a prize, including but not limited to human error, technical malfunctions, lost or delayed entries for any reason, mail failures, omission, or any combination thereof, and entries that fail to fully comply with these Contest Rules; (ii) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software; (iii) lost, incomplete, delayed, mutilated or misdirected entries or Winner Releases; (iv) injury or damage to entrants’ (or their parent(s)' or legal guardian(s)' (as applicable) computers or to any other individual’s computer related to or resulting from participating in, or downloading any material regarding the Contest or accepting a prize; (v) any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s (or their parent(s) or legal guardian(s), as applicable) participation in the Contest or receipt or use or misuse of any prize, including any related travel and the use of entries by Sponsor; (vi) the security or privacy of information transmitted via computer networks or for breaches of privacy due to interference by third-party computer hackers or otherwise; or (vii) late, lost, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts to notify a potential winner.
Award of Tesla Prize. The Tesla Prize shall be awarded to the winner as expeditiously as reasonably possible by the Sponsor. Because of the possibility that a cash prize is awarded in some circumstances, all entrants acknowledge that the Sponsor will order the Tesla prize, as described, within two (2) business days of confirming that a winner is entitled to the Tesla Prize rather than a cash equivalent. All entrants acknowledge and agree that the timing of the delivery of the Tesla Prize is therefore unknown to the Sponsor.
Other Conditions. The Sponsor reserves the right to terminate or amend this Contest at any time and in any way, without prior notice to entrants. Without limiting the foregoing, if, for any reason, the Contest is not capable of running as originally planned, the Sponsor reserves the right to terminate the Contest and conduct a random draw from all previously received eligible entries received by the Electric Vehicle Contest End Date.
Law. The Contest is void where prohibited by law and is subject to all applicable Canadian federal, provincial, territorial, municipal, and local laws, including but not limited to the Competition Act, R.S.C. 1985, c. C-34 and the Criminal Code, R.S.C. 1985, c. C-46. This Contest shall be governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario, including all issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation, and enforceability of these Contest rules, rights, and obligations between entrants and the Sponsor, and procedural provisions, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules. Any dispute shall be adjudicated by the courts sitting in Toronto, Ontario.
Rule Amendments. The Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to amend or modify these Contest Rules, or modify, cancel or suspend this Contest, without prior notice for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation in the event that any cause beyond the reasonable control of the Sponsor corrupts, or threatens to corrupt, the security or proper administration of the Contest.

All intellectual property, other than that related to the Tesla prize, including but not limited to trademarks, logos, designs, promotional materials, web pages, source codes, images, drawings, illustrations, slogans, and representations, are owned by the Sponsor. All rights reserved. Unauthorized copying or use of any of the Sponsor’s intellectual property without the express written consent of the Sponsor is strictly prohibited.

The Sponsor makes no representations, warranties or guarantees as to the Tesla’s functionality. All complaints related to the Tesla product including claims for defects or warranty claims shall be made directly to Tesla Inc., and not to the Sponsor.
