A man named Horace originally founded Régimbal in 1926 and specialized in jewellery and watch repair. Believe it or not, he started this business in the back room of a Sussex Road barbershop in downtown Ottawa.
Régimbal opens its first sales boutique on Dalhousie Street in downtown Ottawa. Eager to expand, this new location allowed Horace to showcase more items and services all while giving him a more professional appearance.
Régimbal then upgraded to a bigger location on Marier Street in Vanier, which was ideally located at the heart of their predominantly Francophone clientele. The building was divided into two sections: the front being the business and the back being a house.
Following the passing of Horace, the family inherited the business along with all its responsibilities. It was a challenge for all siblings to co-exist in this shared environment at first. Despite these difficulties, their collaboration allowed the Régimbal legacy to carry on.
Luc had always kept an eye on the business, which led him to approach his close friend, Stéphane, with the idea of taking over the family business together. Undeterred by inexperience, their main goal was to generate more business. They introduced promotional items to their product offerings within 6 months and have been partners since that day.
Due to our remarkable success and growth, we opened a second location at 1439 Youville Drive. Excited to expand, this two storey, 2,100 square foot building gave us a wider range that allowed us to reach more customers. Later that year, an embroidery and sublimation machine was added to our collection; two new services we now had to offer.
To celebrate the years of success, we used the opportunity to spruce up the place. We decided to give the exterior of our building a facelift including a new sign and windows to showcase our most popular products.
Due to our remarkable growth, we relocated and consolidated the Orleans and Vanier stores to a new state of the art facility; allowing a more effective workplace and a larger selection of products to better serve you. Located at 5369 Canotek Road in the Canotek Business Park, we invite you to come visit our 1,500 square foot showroom.
Régimbal Promotions has built its reputation on the quality of products and services they’ve been offering for over 90 years. This practice is still upheld by Luc and Stéphane as they serve multiple businesses in the great Ottawa-Gatineau area.
Specializing in multiple facets of promotions, we are the leading supplier of promotional items and trophies for the region’s largest corporate events, sporting occasions, and promotional campaigns. We remain one of the most well-renowned businesses in its field. A combination of four generations’ experience and our reputation for quality service has made us a recognized provider for large businesses, government departments, and the private sector.
Due to our remarkable growth in the eastern part of the capital, we have now relocated and consolidated the Orleans and Vanier stores to a new state of the art facility at 5369 Canotek Road in the Canotek Business Park. Our 8,000 sq. ft. establishment allows a more effective workplace, a larger selection of products, and with in-house services to conveniently serve you better.

We take pleasure in doing business with you and look forward to providing you with continued prompt, friendly, quality service you have become accustomed to over the past 88 years of business with Régimbal Promotions.
The business values that guide our purchasing rest in community support. We support organizations that treat employees and suppliers well, provide fair pay and working conditions, and who also support their community (including caring for the environment). Like any business, they must still produce products that offer value to our clients and us.
As you may know, caring and supporting our community means pricing and costs are not the only criteria considered upon purchasing. Lower prices certainly involve fewer Canadians, are less likely to have environmental production controls, and they keep the cost of input resources to the lowest possible – including human resources. Régimbal aims to have competitive pricing while offering a great value to you. That’s guarantee!
