Robinson Lighting has been perfecting the art of lighting for over 85 years. Thomas Robinson was the first generation of the Robinson family to venture into the lighting industry as a chandler (candle maker) in Montreal, Quebec around 1850. His son, William Wadby Robinson established a successful lighting agency recognized as the first dealer of pre-wired lighting fixtures in Western Canada in 1919. A few years later, Burt A. Robinson, a third generation of the Robinson family founded B.A Robinson Co. Ltd supplying lighting and electrical products to Canadian commercial and residential customers in 1936. The company was later acquired by Burt’s two sons, Ross and Bruce Robinson in 1973. Before long, Robinson Lighting became it’s own free standing entity, and is now managed by Bruce’s children, Brett Robinson (President) and Leigh Robinson (Executive Vice President) who are the fifth generation of the Robinson family to enter into the lighting industry.
Our employees are trained to become Certified American Lighting Specialists to ensure that customers are provided with the most up-to-date information on lighting.

We provide competitive pricing that is equal or lower than prices advertised on other online lighting retailers.
Our goal is to provide the traditional shopping experience of being able to see, and feel the products first-hand in our showroom, while eliminating the comparison process of looking online.
We offer a 100% price match guarantee on any item, as long as it is from a vendor we carry, has the exact same model number, and CDN currency.
Our root as a family-owned business in Canada has fuelled our desire to give back to our community that has supported us for over 80 years.
Our company was founded based on the principal of “treating people the way we like to be treated.“
Today, we have fifth-generation family members working together in the business, ensuring that this remains our number one priority.
