Volkswagen celebrates those who give back


Volkswagen celebrates those who give back

We believe it’s up to us to build the world we want. Lucky for the world, many of our Volkswagen owners agree.

Introducing #Volksgiving 2019

Volksgiving started last year as a customer appreciation event to reward some of our most valued customers.

This year, we wanted to continue to recognize our owners, but we also wanted to make Volksgiving stand for something.

We searched across Canada for Volkswagen’s “unsung heroes” – those who make positive contributions to their communities without asking for anything in return.

We received over 1,300 responses from volunteers across the country. We then invited  fourteen outstanding Volkswagen owners and their guests to an exclusive appreciation event.

They had no idea that the night was actually to celebrate and recognize them, and that we had some big surprises in store.

We started with a donation to their charities and initiatives. And that was just the beginning. Unbeknownst to our guests, we’d been working with their plus-ones to find them the perfect gift, from “bucket list trips” to experiences they had long since forgotten about.

Stories were shared, friendships formed, and what started out as a “thank-you” dinner turned into something much more.

We set out to surprise a group of valued Volkswagen owners. And in the end, they surprised us with their incredible generosity and selfless spirit.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price and excludes taxes, freight, and PDI ($1,850 (Jetta and Jetta GLI), $1,900 (Golf GTI and Golf R), and $2,050 (Tiguan, Taos, Cross Sport, Atlas, ID.4), levies, fees, optional equipment, license, insurance, registration, and any dealer or other charges (where applicable). If MSRP is not mentioned, prices shown include freight and PDI, environmental levies, and a $500 representative dealer admin fee (actual fee amount is set by dealers and varies, up to $500). Dealer Administration Fee includes documentation and administration costs related to the delivery of the vehicle, such as the dealer cost involved in licensing, lien search, and contract administration. Environmental or related levies and taxes may vary by jurisdiction. Dealer may sell for less. Prices are in Canadian dollars. This is not an offer to sell at a certain price. Actual selling prices and terms are set by dealers. European or American models may be shown. Specifications, equipment, options, and prices are subject to change without notice. Although we endeavour to ensure that the information contained on the website is accurate, as errors may occur from time to time, customers should contact their local Volkswagen dealer for details. Photos for illustration purposes only. Some items, such as wheels, may be unavailable on some trim levels when vehicle is built or may not be available in Canada.
  • Due to supply chain disruptions, certain trim levels may not be readily available and require a factory order from your Volkswagen dealer. Wait times will vary as a result of these supply chain disruptions, with current lead time for factory orders estimated between 6 – 8 months for most models, and approximately 18 months for the ID.4, subject to change without notice. Actual delivery dates could be affected by various factors beyond Volkswagen Canada’s and Volkswagen Canada Dealer’s control. Volkswagen Canada or Volkswagen Dealers will not be liable for any such delay in delivery. Supply chain disruptions can cause changes in available standard and/or optional equipment. The MSRP for a vehicle will be adjusted if specific equipment is not included. Please contact your dealer for more information.
