Our Community Efforts

Crites & Riddell Basics wishes to support students in financial need at McGill University. Therefore, they established in 2006 the Alexander C. Riddell Bursaries in memory of Alexander C. Riddell Sr., an accomplished athlete and Montreal entrepreneur. Awarded by the Scholarships and Student Aid Office, to one or more students in any year of the B.Com program who are in good academic standing and demonstrate financial need with preference being given to those who are also intercollegiate athletes in any sport. Crites & Riddell Basics wants to encourage the young people to be able to pursue their goal without caring about finances and focus 100 % in their studies. A well established family company in Montreal since 1911, we believe that the best investment is in the future of our people in order to allow a better quality of life for the next generations.

In 2007 we decided to offer our customers, free pickup of empty cartridges that we then return to the suppliers for recycling. The revenues generated from theses returns benefit the Sainte-Justine UHC Foundation, whom has the only university health care centre devoted exclusively to the health of children, adolescents and mothers in Quebec. The funds are invested in the avant-garde specialized care, health promotion, research and teaching programs. This activity allows us to support two areas that are important to our company: the health care of our children and the protection of the environment.

Crites & Riddell Basics is involved in the community and likes to thank its customers and its employees.
