Years in Business





In June of 2011 my franchise agreement with Petro-Canada was dissolved and Oakville Certigard had to change its name officially because we were now an independent shop.

I approached my father, with the suggestion that I would like to use the family name for my business. He agreed to me using our name on one condition. To never put myself in a position that would bring shame to our family. I live by this rule every day in my business.

We always put safety first by using our inspection report that lets you decide on what you want to do.
