Canadian Troops Honoured With New Licence Plate Logo
McGuinty Government Encourages Ontarians To Support Our Troops
New Ontario licence plates featuring the Yellow Ribbon - Support our Troops logo are being introduced to honour the Canadian Forces.
Starting February 1, 2010, these regular, personalized and sample licence plates can be ordered through select ServiceOntario locations and driver and vehicle licence issuing offices across the province. Personalized licence plates with the new logo will also be available for order online at www.ServiceOntario.ca and by phone at 1-800-AUTO-PL8.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the licence plates will go the Canadian Forces Personnel Assistance Fund, which helps current and former members of the Canadian military and their immediate families.
This new licence plate complements the existing veteran's plate, which features a poppy in honour of those who have served or are currently serving in the Canadian Armed Forces.
- CANEX and the Canadian Forces Personnel Assistance Fund (CFPAF) applied for a Yellow Ribbon - Support our Troops graphic licence plate through the government's Graphic Licence Plate Program.
- The Graphic Licence Plate program was re-launched by ServiceOntario in June 2009 with new processes, participation criteria and contract management practices.
“This is a fitting tribute to the heroism of those who served in our armed forces and those who continue to risk their lives as part of Canada's military mission.”
Harinder S. Takhar
“Just as the poppy symbolizes remembrance of Canadian soldiers, the yellow ribbon honours the ongoing efforts of our troops around the world. These plates remind us that we live in peace and freedom because of their sacrifices.”
“We appreciate the provincial government's show of support for Canadian Forces members and their families, and we'll use the royalties received to continue to provide necessary financial assistance to those who need it.”
