Unicanvas : Its History

Unicanvas goes back to 1955 at a time when our main occupation consisted of waterproofing and mending tarpaulins used in bulk industry transportation.

Since then, Unicanvas has never stopped creating new products. We were one of the very first company to come up with the idea of making a trailer into a ‘’tent’’. We were also the first to build a tempory car shelter capable of withstanding our harsh Canadian winters. These two ideas have gone a very long way since.

Today, the company owns more than 24 000 square feet of installations which include a variety of department such as:

  • Manufacture and assembly of metal
  • Production
  • Research and development
  • Repair service
  • Sales

Unicanvas : Quality above all else

Unicanvas remains motivated by our desire to offer our customers the best quality products available and to develop products for their future needs. 

Unicanvas' efforts are concentrated on the following :

  • Quick production and delivery
  • Pride in a job well done and the satisfaction of seering our customers happy. 


From the founder to his son today, from the youngest employee to the oldest, we all agree on one thing:

'We will not let any product bear the Unicanvas name if it isn’t of top quality'
