Télébec is dedicated to the development of the regions we serve through active presence and steadfast support of our communities. Our role in economic development is demonstrated by the donations to, and sponsorship of hundreds of community activities in our territory.

We support United Way and promote Health, Education, Sport and Culture, which are a vibrant part of our northern communities. We also give particular attention to socio-economic organizations that share in our corporate commitment to the communities we serve, such as Chambers of Commerce and Economic Development units.

DONATIONS - Health/Mental Health/Well-being and Education

Whether we live in a large urban centre or a smaller rural community, and regardless of age, Health and Education are two key areas of concern to everyone. Télébec employees live and work in the regions we serve and they share the same concerns as our customers. As a company involved in its community and as a responsible corporate citizen, we do more than listen to our customers, we respond.

  • Health/Mental Health/Well-being
    Even though Télébec supports hospital foundations and certain organizations in the Health field, the Company has selected United Way as its benefactor of choice. Each year, Télébec and its employees embark on a corporate campaign to raise funds for this worthwhile cause. Hence, the company donates generously to United Way who supports a number of member agencies in the health field.

    Menthal Health is the main cause for Télébec. This unprecedented support results in several ways towards initiatives focused on promoting and supporting mental health. We support each year programs designed to increase awareness, understanding and treatment of mental illness and to promote access to care and research across Canada.

  • Education
    In the area of education, Télébec supports a comprehensive bursary program for the graduating students of secondary schools across the serving territory. This program encourages excellence among today's youth who will undoubtedly be the business leaders and professionals of tomorrow.
