New Specialty Plate will help ‘Support our Troops’
Manitobans now have a new way to support members of the Canadian Armed Forces and their families, by purchasing a new specialty licence plate. A set of ‘Support our Troops’ plates are available from any Autopac agent. The plates cost $70, with $30 of the sale being used to fund educational scholarships for qualifying military members and family members enrolled in a post-secondary institution within the province.
“This licence plate is exceptional because it allows motorists to show their support for Canadians who serve this country as members of the Canadian Armed Forces,” said Healthy Living and Seniors Minister, and Special Envoy for Military Affairs Deanne Crothers. “By purchasing this plate, Manitobans will know a portion of each sale will go directly to educational scholarships for qualifying military members, their spouses, partners or children who wish to study here in Manitoba.”
The plates can be used on all passenger vehicles such as cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles, mopeds and farm trucks. Customers may also purchase and use the plates as a souvenir keepsake.
For more information, visit an Autopac agent or call 204-985-7000 (in Winnipeg) or 1-800-665-2410 (toll-free outside Winnipeg).
