True North Safety Group Back Story


Growing up in Northwestern Ontario in an environment where if you wanted something, you had to work for it, I remember the consistent mantra of my father:

  • If you are going to do something, do it right;
  • When you were a little overwhelmed by task at hand a little bit of “elbow grease” would get it done;
  • An honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay.


While I did not appreciate the value of this paternal input in my early years (and in fact tried to avoid it), it was embedded into me, and became the cornerstone of my professional life.  True North Safety Group was founded on these principles, and endeavours to provide its clients with professional opinions and products that are “done right”, through hard work, and for an honest fee.


We will continue to build our practice by seeking out likeminded experts with a True North work ethic, who are invested in providing world-class transportation safety services.
