Annual Golf tournament - $14,000 raised!

Montreal, June 7, 2017. – On June 2nd, 2017, Corbeil Appliances held its seventh annual charity golf tournament, in conjunction with the network of Quebec youth and family centres.

All proceeds from the tournament will go to young people in the form of brand new household appliances—which they will receive when they leave their youth centres and foster families for the first time, giving them a fresh start.

This year’s event raised $14,000, matching last year’s result and bringing the total amount collected since its first edition in 2011 to $89,000.

Corbeil is proud to be the host of a tournament that lends young people a helping hand, year after year and would like to thank all the people who went above and beyond the call of duty to raise money for the network of Quebec youth and family centres.

Corbeil would also like to thank the employees, suppliers, volunteers and Mr. Yves Corbeil himself for their presence at the event and for showing their support for the cause.

Corbeil, Energy Star retailer of the year!

Montreal, June 1, 2016. – Corbeil Appliances took home Natural Resources Canada’s “Retailer of the Year – Regional – 2016” award for its efforts in marketing and launching ENERGY STAR appliances. It’s the second time Corbeil has won an ENERGY STAR award. In 2010, the company made headlines by winning an award of excellence in the “Business Partner – Retailer” category in Hydro-Québec’s Energy Wise Competition of Excellence.

Through its constant efforts to promote Energy Star energy-efficient appliances, Corbeil was a particular standout this year. In 2015, the appliance specialist highlighted its energy-efficient products on multiple platforms and in a range of media, including:

  • Over 2,300,000 Energy Star-certified household appliance brochures distributed four times a year.
  • Advertising on CTV and CTV TWO in the Ottawa region.
  • Advertising on the Web throughout the year, with 117 millions views.
  • Advertising in the newspaper an average of five times a month
  • Promoting through newsletters, approximately nine times a year, sent to over 15,000 subscribers.
  • Over 1,250,000 visits to the Corbeil website

"The ENERGY STAR awards demonstrate how Canadian businesses and organizations across the country are driving the transition to a low-carbon, clean-growth economy, growing the number of energy-efficient products and homes in the market and making it easier for consumers to save money and reduce energy use."

    – Jim Carr, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources

Corbeil is proud to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and maximize consumers’ energy consumption. The appliance specialist will continue to innovate with a range of initiatives promoting and encouraging the energy efficiency of Energy Star-certified products.
