Mr. Lube has partnered with BGC Canada (formerly known as Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada) to help keep their vehicles in top driving condition this winter. 

BGC Club staff rely on their vans to deliver vital programming to youth in 70+ communities across Canada. To help get their fleet ready for the upcoming winter season, Mr. Lube offered free new Continental Tire winter tires and installation to their long-standing partner.

“Thanks to our various locations, and the quick and easy tire-install services we provide, we were in the position to help get BGC Clubs road-ready very quickly,” says Stuart Suls, President & CEO, Mr. Lube Canada. “BGC staff were able to drive into our locations at their convenience and get same-day service, rather than having to plan their seasonal tire changes weeks in advance.”

Impact of inflation

A recent survey by Mr. Lube highlights the automobile-related sacrifices that Canadians are considering making this upcoming winter. Even though they anticipate busy roads, three-in-ten Canadians (32%) plan to delay purchasing new winter tires – or their winter tire change – due to inflation or budget constraints.

“The fact that about a third of Canadians are considering sacrificing safety this winter due to financial constraints is alarming,” says Stuart Suls, President & CEO, Mr. Lube Canada. “As soon as the temperature drops to 7C or below, drivers need winter tires to minimize slipping and to ensure they grip the road in snowy and icy conditions. Driving without winter tires in cold weather is dangerous.”

“We need to do everything we can to make our vehicles as safe as possible,” says Rachael MacKenzie-Neill, Vice President, Marketing & Development, BGC Canada. “This in-kind donation is incredibly helpful, as it will help our Clubs stretch their annual budgets. Inflation is hitting our Clubs hard, so we are very thankful for Mr. Lube’s support this year.”
