    Why is this contest not valid for Quebec? I want to join but is it about the language laws?

    • Melissa (FBC Admin) July 14, 2015 at 5:10 pm #

      Hi Jason, Quebec has very different contest laws from the rest of the country that require registering each contest and doing a number of other things so a lot of companies just choose to make national contests unavailable in Quebec. It’s not unusual, and unfortunately most of the contests we run disqualify Quebec residents from taking part. You can read a little bit more about what’s involved here: http://contests.about.com/od/sweepstakes101/f/VoidinQuebec.htm.
