SGS in Canada
SGS Canada began in 1948 as a specialist provider of services for the agricultural industry. Today, our operations across Canada have rapidly evolved into highly technical service provision, conducting precise and accurate analytical testing, such as DNA fingerprinting and metals speciation for numerous business lines.
We maintain a strong presence as a top-quality service provider at all major ports and trading hubs across Canada, and are known across the world for excellence in exploration and mining. We have a strong presence in the oil sands in Fort McMurray and have an established network of Centres of Excellence for Life Sciences. We have offices and laboratories throughout Canada, including Mississauga, ON, Lakefield, ON, Burnaby, BC, Calgary AB, Winnipeg MB and Montreal, QC.
