Each technician undergoes over 40 hours a year in continuing education classes to ensure they are trained to meet your every need.

Edmundo Reyes founded Canada Radiators & Auto Repair Center in 1977. An immigrant from Chile, he arrived in 1969 speaking not a word of English and with no money. In order to support his family he took on some odd jobs. He worked in mines, drove mining trucks, and eventually became a painter.
All the while he improved his skills and looked for an opportunity to provide a valuable service that would ensure more stability for his family.
That opportunity came when he opened Canada Radiators’ doors in 1977, servicing automotive and industrial radiators. Most of his work at that time came from referrals from other general automotive shops.
As direct sales to the public grew, he saw an opportunity to expand, so he opened our general auto repair division in the mid-1990s.
