Father-Son Team Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro for a Great Cause!

Father-son team Jamie and Mark Straw are preparing for a big adventure. The team will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in a few weeks with the Dream Mountains 2017 Mt. Kilimanjaro Trek. Mt. Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest point and the world's highest free standing mountain.

  

Their adventure isn't just for fun though, as Jamie and Mark are using their climb to raise money for the Sens Foundation. The Sens Foundation empowers children and youth to reach their full potential by investing in social recreation and education programs that promote both physical and mental wellness.

 

Myers is happy to sponsor Jamie and Mark's climb, and we hope any who are able to contribute to their fundraising efforts will support this great father-son team and the cause they have chosen to support!

RedBull Crashed Ice Skater Jacqueline Legere Finishes in Top Spot For Second Year

Myers would like to congratulate Canadian RedBull Crashed Ice skater Jacqueline Legere, who Myers Orléans Chev Buick GMC, Myers Orléans Nissan, and Myers Cadillac Chev Buick GMC teamed up to sponsor, on her second RedBull Crashed Ice Championship title!

  

Legere took on many other skaters from all over the world throughout the 2016/2017 RedBull Crashed Ice circuit, with the finals taking place in Ottawa along the Rideau Canal between the Chateau Laurier hotel and Parliament Hill. Legere went into the finals with an impressive season behind her and didn't disappoint the fans in the crowd as she fought to keep her Championship title for the second year.

Three Myers Dealerships Team Up to Sponsor RedBull Crashed Ice Skater Jacqueline Legere for 2016/2017 season!

Myers Cadillac Chev Buick GMC, Myers Orléans Chev Buick GMC, and Myers Orléans Nissan have teamed up to sponsor Canadian RedBull Crashed Ice Skater Jacqueline Legere as she defends her 2016 Champion title.

(Jacqueline Legere wearing pink in middle)

The RedBull Crashed Ice Championship has brought a great deal of attention to the world, and entertainment, of ice cross downhill - the fastest sport on skates where skaters race down a massive ice track filled with drops, hairpin turns, and gaps at speeds of more than 50 km/h. World Championship points are up for grabs at each of the stops and the competitor who skates through the season with the most points accumulated after the races is crowned World Champion.

 

Legere has been doing well this season, with appearances on the podium in Marseille, France where she placed 1st, and in Jyväskylä-Laajis, Finland when she placed 3rd. Cheer on the St. George, Ontario native while she rocks the Myers logo at the RedBull Crashed Ice Finals in Ottawa March 3rd and 4th. The event will take place along the Rideau Canal and is free. Tickets are available for purchase for those wishing to upgrade their RedBull Crashed Ice experience with Ice Club VIP Tickets. For full event details, visit the website here.

The Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly Unit Opens at Queensway Carleton Hospital

The new Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly (ACE) Unit at the Queensway Carleton Hospital recently celebrated the official opening and is preparing to start taking patients soon. As the Myers Automotive Group donated $1 million towards the ACE unit, a few members from the Myers group and Mews family, including Mr. Hank Mews and son Mr. Robert Mews (Executive VP of The Myers Automotive Group)  were on hand at the grand opening ceremony which was timed to a visit from Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, and Infrastructure Minister and local MPP, Bob Chiarelli.

 
 

The Mews family and the Myers Automotive Group have always felt it is important to give back to the Ottawa-area community and are happy to have made this contribution to the Queensway Carleton Hospital, where Mr. Hank Mews has previously sat on the hospital board. We look forward to seeing how this new unit helps the Ottawa-area community members in need of this specialised care.

Myers' Barrhaven Toyota Grand Opening

Although the doors at Myers' Barrhaven Toyota have been open since mid-April 2016, the official grand opening took place June 16th, 2016. The grand opening event, which was attended by many of the important people who helped the dealership come to become a reality after many years of planning, also included the finalists from an exciting contest Myers' Barrhaven Toyota decided to have to celebrate the grand opening! 
Guests enjoyed live music and delicious food and beverages while taking in the new dealerships gorgeous showroom. Following speeches by the General Manager of the dealership, Matthew Bradley, the City of Ottawa Councillor for the Barrhaven Ward, Jan Harder, the President of Toyota Canada, Larry Hutchinson, and the CEO and Executive VP of the Myers Automotive Group, Harry and Rob Mews, guests were invited outside where a winner of the "Your Key to the Corolla" Contest was decided.
For a couple of months prior to the grand opening event, Myers' Barrhaven Toyota had been accepting entries to the "Your Key to the Corolla" Contest, through which they were going to be giving away one two-year lease on a brand new 2016 Toyota Corolla. From the hundreds of entries received, 25 finalists were chosen at random and invited to the grand opening event where they each chose a piece of paper at random which had a number on it that corresponded to one of 25 Toyota Corollas parked infront of the dealership. The finalists took their places in the front seats hoping they were in the one that would start on the count of three. The crowd helped count down and Andrew Morris was in the lucky car that started!
We'd like to thank everyone who has helped Myers' Barrhaven Toyota in the planning and building process, and those who have helped contribute to the great success the dealership has seen since opening its doors!

Myers is happy to have had two teams compete, one from Myers Central Cadillac Chev Buick GMC and another from Myers Orléans Chev Buick GMC.

Top of their class!


With the increasingly higher technical demands of   automotive repairs and maintenance, highly skilled   service technicians are a vital asset for automotive   dealers.
In 1990, Algonquin College provided such a program,   the ASEP program (Automotive Service Education   Program) with the objective of providing full automotive technical training for Apprentices. Myers Cadillac Chev Buick GMC was one of the founding dealers in Ottawa   supporting the program for the last 25 years.
Randy Scott, GM ASEP Coordinator at Algonquin   College stated that, "The Myers Automotive Group not   only supplies regular students for the program, they   have been instrumental in the direction of the program   with a representative on the ASEP Advisory Committee. The current building we occupy was the result of our   local GM dealers, Algonquin College, GM of Canada   and the Ministry of Training Colleges & Universities all working together. Supplies such as engines and miscellaneous parts have also been directed to our school as on-going critical support by the Myers group."
Over the years, the strong partnership with dealers such as Myers has allowed the Algonquin ASEP department to graduate many of the highest academic achievers in the area.
During the most recent graduation in November, Danick Bourdeau of Myers Cadillac Chev Buick GMC was the recipient of the highest award possible for his achievements. The Myers group also had two other graduates, Tyler Tagano of Myers Kanata Chev Buick GMC and Cory Wilson of Myers Cadillac Chev Buick GMC.
Myers is proud to have been a strong partner in this vital program. In return we have been instrumental in providing the best trained people in the industry. This has been the Myers commitment…providing the best in convenient, friendly, and professional service along with superior technical know-how to our customers.
Congratulations to our Myers graduates! We're proud of you!

Held this year on February 8, 2014 and hosted by the Knoxdale-Merivale Council of Community Associations or KMC, the hockey tournament had great weather and amazing participation throughout the event. After its fourth year running the tournament, the event hopes to attract new players in the following years, and encourage tournament veterans to continue coming back in the future. Myers is proud to have been able to support the community event.

A Valuable Lesson For A Grade 11 Math Class in Orleans


A class of students at École Secondaire Catholique Garneau got a special lesson in vehicle budgeting and purchasing from Myers Orleans Nissan Sales Manager Matt Pigeon after a mathematics teacher approached the dealership looking for an expert to help out as a guest presenter for a Grade 11 mathematics class. The special lesson included information on the difference between financing and leasing and how the two options apply to both new and used vehicles.  We hope the students enjoyed the presentation and remember the valuable information when it comes time for them to buy their own vehicles.
