Once again, congratulations to all the winners and a big thank you to all the others who participated.


Personal Support Worker HQ (PSWHQ) have been around for just over four years now.

We had tremendous success with more than 1.5 million visits and have become the #1 resource for Personal Support Workers in Ontario.

To thank all our readers for their trust and in the spirit of this holiday season, we have decided to give away $350 to 8 lucky winners.

The contest entries are open until midnight of December 17, 2017.

You’re allowed only one entry.

However, the cool thing about this giveaway is that you can increase your chances of winning by referring your friends and colleagues.

Yes, that’s right.

Each referral will earn you an extra entry into the contest.

The contest will be drawn in 1 to 3 days after it closes on December 17.

Each winner will be notified via email (the one you used to enter the give away), and the prizes will be sent to you in a registered mail via Canada Post.

We aim to get the gift cards to you before Christmas.

The contest is for Ontario residents only.

Winners will be asked to provide a mailing address. Outside of Ontario mailing addresses are not acceptable.

    If I won one of the prizes I would treat my mom to something special as we just lost my dad this past October and she really needs some tlc.

    • Avtar November 29, 2017, 9:42 am

      Sorry to hear about your Dad Kathleen. Best of luck with everything!

    • Avtar December 4, 2017, 2:52 pm

      You’re right Lynda. Very festive out there. To top it up, hope we get some snow 🙂
      All the best with the contest!

  • Ashley Provincial December 4, 2017, 11:59 am

    Donate some of it to ALS then use the rest for my business on getting more supplies.

    • Avtar December 4, 2017, 2:50 pm

      That’s a great thought, Ashley. Wish you all the best.

    If I won one of the prizes, I would probably go on a little shopping spree and buy nice lotions for residents who are allowed to have them 😍

    • Avtar December 5, 2017, 9:49 am

      That very nice of you Alexandra. Lotion definitely helps, especially in winters.
      By the way, you’re doing great with the referrals for this giveaway. Keep it up!

  • nadine December 8, 2017, 10:08 am

    i would makeup and buy a very comfortable work shoe

    • Avtar December 9, 2017, 6:40 am

      Nadine…Wearing proper walking shoes is a fundamental element in maintaining the correct walking technique, as well as preventing injury. Shoes are tools. Without the correct tools, you are likely to hurt yourself, making you more prone to suffer further and more severe injuries in the future.
      Wish you all the best for the contest.

  • April December 8, 2017, 8:49 pm

    I would use the money towards stocking up on Egg Nog! My children absolutely love it!

    • Avtar December 9, 2017, 6:38 am

      April…Egg Nog is just so delicious.
      All the best for the contest.

  • Lydia December 10, 2017, 8:53 pm

    I would do a romantic dinner for a friend who’s new wife is very ill due to Chemo treatments. She can’t eat or get out of her recliner to dance but they can cuddle and sway to a special song.

  • jennifer December 12, 2017, 9:03 am
