Community Involvement

We are proud to support the communities where we operate.

We strive to grow existing relationships as well as create and foster new opportunities with our clients. Being a family owned and operated business means we care about ensuring healthy, fun and vibrant communities that we work and live in. We’ve been fortunate to strengthen the bond with our clients through various community events such as golf tournaments, fishing derbies, plow matches as well as many other special events.

Benson, because we care is not only a motto but a lifestyle.


The Benson Group takes a great deal of pride in having Cornwall, Ontario’s multi-purpose recreation complex bear the name Benson Centre.

The facility boasts 3 NHL sized rinks as well as an indoor soccer pitch and tennis court, not to mention the four meeting rooms, child friendly play area and offices for several local minor sports associations.

By the end of 2013, there will be two outdoor soccer pitches added to Benson Centre making it the hub of sporting activity in Cornwall as well as most of Stormont-Dundas and Glengarry.

“Having the facility named Benson Centre is great sense of personal and professional pride and would not be possible with the hard work and dedication of our employees as well as the continued support of our loyal customers,” said Benson Group President Marty Benson.

Benson Charity BBQs
The Benson Group has built a tradition of assisting various community charities in meeting their financial targets thanks in large part to our Benson Charity BBQs.

Through the Benson Marketing Team, more than $15,000 is raised each year for various community initiatives such as Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Cornwall and District, Relay For Life, Children’s Aid Society, Children’s Treatment Centre, Cops for Cancer and many other groups and agencies.

The Benson BBQs have developed a following that ensures recognition and succesful fundraising throughout the community.
