TORONTO, Canada – Corus Entertainment rekindles its romance with brand partners this fall announcing Sunwing, Two Oceans Wines, and Michael Hill Jeweller as returning sponsors to W Network’s The Bachelor Canada franchise following a successful season of integrations on The Bachelorette Canada. As Canada’s most eligible bachelor Chris Leroux searches for love, his epic journey will be complemented by brand-driven integrations throughout The Bachelor Canada and The Bachelor Canada After Show.

“The success of The Bachelorette Canada last fall proved the power of brand integration opportunities to our partners within this much-loved franchise, leading them to come back wanting more,” said Lynn Chambers, Vice President of Corus Tempo. “The Bachelor Canada provides unmatched opportunities for our partners to seamlessly weave their brands into the storyline in authentic ways that resonate with the series’ committed fan base.”

The Bachelor Canada experience isn’t complete without a tropical backdrop. Returning as the exclusive travel sponsor, Sunwing will whisk the Bachelor and his bachelorettes away to three of the series’ top-secret destinations. In each location, they will enjoy romantic and adventurous dream dates curated by Sunwing Experiences. As a broadcast and digital sponsor of The Bachelor Canada and The Bachelor Canada After Show, Sunwing will make these dream getaways a reality for fans across Canada by offering two chances to win Bachelor Canada-inspired vacations to the final two destinations featured this season. Promoted during The Bachelor Canada and The Bachelor Canada After Show, Canadians will be driven to WNetwork.com to enter for their chance to win. Full details for the contests will be announced at a later time. Exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the dates in the tropical destinations, as well as video Q&A from some of the exiting bachelorettes will be sponsored by Sunwing and published on W Network’s social media channels throughout the season.

Two Oceans Wines toasts their return as broadcast sponsor and exclusive wine of The Bachelor Canada and The Bachelor Canada After Show. From crisp whites for group dates to smooth reds for intimate one-on-ones, Two Oceans Wines pairs perfectly with every scenario. The returning sponsor kicked off the conversation earlier this year when they sponsored the first interview with Chris Leroux on ET Canada in June.

Adding some sparkle to the romance is Michael Hill, returning as the broadcast and digital sponsor of The Bachelor Canada. During one of the season’s fairytale destinations, the returning sponsor will provide one lucky bachelorette with a stunning array of diamond, gold and precious stone jewels for an epically romantic one-on-one date. As the season draws to its dramatic conclusion,  Chris will select an engagement ring from the exquisite Michael Hill Bridal collections for a potential proposal for one of the final two bachelorettes with the help of Brett Halliday, the President of Sales and Operations in Canada at Michael Hill. In conjunction with the series premiere, fans can get in on the glam from Michael Hill by participating in an online predictions game. Stay tuned to WNetwork.com for more details.

Corus Tempo worked with VMC on behalf of Sunwing; Your Brand Integrated Marketing Communications and Jungle Media on Two Oceans Wines and Media Experts on Michael Hill. Sponsorship opportunities are available for The Bachelor Canada After Show.

About Two Oceans Wines
Crafted by cool fresh sea breeze and the warm African soil, the Two Oceans range of wines is a product of micro-climatic influences in the Western Cape where the cold Atlantic and the warm Indian oceans meet. This convergence greatly impacts the region’s climate, coastline and areas inland, causing grapes to develop with balanced, intense and plentiful flavours. Sold in over 80 countries worldwide, the Two Oceans range of wines are made from IPW-accredited vines, are farmed according to eco-sustainable principles and carry fully-traceable sustainability seals that guarantee integrity of production. Bottled wines are sold in lightweight, fully-recyclable 750 ml bottles. Two Oceans is produced by Distell Wine & Spirits, Africa’s leading producer and marketer of spirits, fine wines, ciders and ready-to-drinks (RTDs).
