At Cantec Fire Alarms, we uphold ourselves to the most stringent of standards and are committed to adopt service practices and professional standards that will continue to set the industry bench-mark. Established in 1974, Cantec is a family owned and operated Canadian business that operates primary on Vancouver Island. We provide superlative customer service at a fair and reasonable price with a continuing focus on providing ethical and honest technical advice to our customers.
Beyond providing exemplary and highly professional service, Cantec offers annual fire alarm inspection services, maintenance, verifications, fire safety plans and repairs on fire alarm systems, emergency lighting and extinguishers for residential, industrial, commercial and institutional settings. We work with other service providers on your behalf to ensure all work is completed fully, leaving our customers constantly comfortable. We also work very closely with property management companies, self-managed strata’s and property owners.
Cantec does work with most fire alarm makes and models. If we do not service a particular make and model, we will help you find someone that does.
We understand the importance of our environment and sustainable business practices, which is why we are excited to have partnered with Service Trade to engage in a digital transformation that will make a paperless based company. Where possible, we will continue the sustainability endeavour which focuses on adopting business practices that embrace technology and digital advances.
