We Recycle program
Videotron set up the We Recycle program to enable its customers to make a practical contribution to environmental protection by giving their obsolete equipment the second chance it deserves. Consumers are welcome to bring their used equipment to Videotron stores.
Recycling electronics for the benefit the community
Videotron is proud of its 10-year association with SIT Mauricie, an organization dedicated to responsible management of electronic materials from construction projects, network maintenance and customer returns.

Employees of the centre sort and disassemble electronic materials in order to give them a new lease on life through reuse, recycling, and recovery.
Regroupement Partage Operation Backpack
Videotron is proud to have participated in the Operation Backpack organized by Regroupement Partage in August 2019. Many employees, including CEO Jean-François Pruneau, helped raise funds at the Square-Victoria-OACI metro station in downtown Montréal.
The donations enabled the organization to pursue its mission of distributing more than 5,000 backpacks filled with school supplies along with insulated lunch boxes.
Quebecor aims to go 100% electric!
Videotron is committed to stepping up the electrification of its vehicles in order to electrify 100% of its fleet of more than 900 vehicles by 2030.
While working to reduce the size of its fleet, Videotron will replace more than 100 gas and/or diesel-powered vehicles with electric vehicles by 2025 and convert more than 100 trucks by equipping them with electric motors.
This is in addition to our existing measures: the use of telemetry, eco-driving training for drivers, and the installation of electric systems in our trucks.
This undertaking will substantially reduce the company’s greenhouse gas emissions and help reduce local air and noise pollution in the areas we serve.
Héma-Québec blood drives at Videotron
Two blood drives are held every year at Videotron to make it convenient for employees to give blood. Videotron is proud to host these drives, in which many employees give blood.
During the last blood drive in November 2019, 84 employees helped save lives by giving blood. They do Videotron proud.
Sign up for online billing
Every year, an information campaign is held to encourage our customers to sign up for online billing in order to reduce paper consumption.
In 2018, Videotron made a commitment to donate $5 to the Fondation CHU Sainte-Justine for every customer who registers for online billing. A grand total of $101,270 was raised for the foundation, whose mission is to ensure that children and mothers at Ste-Justine hospital receive the best care anywhere, now and in the future.
A magical Christmas at Videotron
For nine years now, two Videotron employees have been proud to spearhead Noël Magique, an initiative that encourages their co-workers to buy a gift for disadvantaged children in the Montréal and Pointe-aux-Trembles areas during the holday season.
The effort supports three organizations that have been assisting families for many years: Carrefour familial les Pitchou, the Rosalie-Jetté high school for pregnant teens and young mothers,and the Dalauze shelter.
- Gradual introduction of air conditioners that use air from outside to cool equipment rooms.
- Possible selection of a low-environmental impact CO2 refrigeration system for equipment rooms.
- Cold aisle and cabinet containment to improve energy efficiency in equipment rooms.
- Replacement and updating of generators to allow for more efficient and less polluting equipment.
- Optimization of heating and cooling systems at Videotron offices.
Videotron can depend on its “Green ambassadors” to sensitize their teams to the importance of social responsibility by promoting various initiatives and making their co-workers aware of the company’s environmental programs.
Every year, a hundred or so Videotron employees come together to volunteer with local organizations, such as Moisson Montréal and Le Chaînon. Among other things, they assemble Christmas baskets and wrap presents for disadvantaged families.
The Supplier Code of Conduct supports our efforts to ensure sound management all along our supply chain.
Videotron’s approach to responsible procurement is based on the inclusion of sustainable development criteria in calls to tender and contracts.
