$400 for a bbq that will last a handful of years is a waste of money.
Canadian Tire sells NO decent BBQ's - everything is low end. They did have some kamado BBQ's that were decent a couple of years ago.
They have a lovely tutorial on their website "How to choose a BBQ" - but they missed the most important fact i.e. to avoid buying your BBQ at CT.

Check to see if there is a Canex in Ottawa. I bought a Broil King Regal 420 Pro (Pics above) for $599.88 and the Reg price is approx $1049.99. $1000-$1100 at most stores. I actually saved the tax and got it all in for $599.88.
Thanks. Just bought the last Broil King Regal 420 Pro in Ottawa, for 599$. However, I paid the taxes... still a good deal for the SS grill!

I would start here, just get a table to put it on, or buy the cart: https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.port ... 55164.html
IMO a basic Weber charcoal kettle works better if one plans to use it only a couple times a year. They last forever even if you leave it out in the rain. Cheap gas BBQs will often rot away faster if left unused for long periods of time.

I have the propane version of the napoleon from their first year in 2014. It's great for the most part. 2 zones are better then the Weber Q's 1 zone.

GanJa786 probably has a natural gas hook up in a condo, which would mean no charcoal grill. But I'm only guessing. But I do enjoy weber's charcoal grills. I have a jumbo joe and it can cook a fair amount for such a portable bbq.

Fortinos in Brampton (Main/Bovaird) had Royal Oak charcoal (blue bag) for $7.50 on clearance. Not a great price, but decent.

Any thoughts on where I should get a Napoleon PRO500RSIBNSS? Looks like the best now is $2199 minus a $150 rebate.

Freshco had them earlier this summer for $5.
$7.50 is No Frills everyday price.

napoleon has something where you can get a charcoal tray put in it, but some people find it's not really well done.

You're better off having a separate charcoal grill, or if you want the convenience of a gas grill, use a smoker box with your grill. But this only really applies to food that takes longer than 20 minutes to cook. Like reverse searing a steak or chicken. And of course low and slow foods like ribs and such.
