In April, the company announced it was ahead of its summer growth targets – at the time announcing the hiring of over 60 persons. Classic FLS remains pleased with the pace of recruitment.
“The strength and vitality of Canada’s fire and life safety industry continues, and it’s clear that interest in the field is growing in tandem,” says Melissa Diaz, Vice President, Human Resources at Classic Fire + Life Safety. “We expected to fill positions but doing so at this pace is a surprise - creating opportunities and being able to onboard highly skilled, passionate team members is what sets us apart.”
The company's recruitment campaign began early 2022.

Positions were filled across the company’s offices in Ajax, Burlington, Cambridge, London, Ottawa, Toronto and Windsor, Ontario, and Winnipeg, Manitoba.
