The Garage Door Depot® was founded in 2007 as the consumer brand of Canadian Access & Door Systems Inc. Canadian Access & Door Systems at the time was solely a commercial overhead door company servicing the Greater Vancouver market however the company knew that to grow it needed to embrace the consumer side of the business as well. This is where The Garage Door Depot® brand finds its origins. In 2009 the company decided to expand using a franchise model and this resulted in the first Garage Door Depot franchise being established in late 2010. Since then we’ve expanded a great deal and have Garage Door Depot locations in most major Canadian markets.
So Yes… We’re National!
And we’re the only one in Canada too that is! The franchise model worked very well in terms of allowing The Garage Door Depot® to continue expanding and today the company has independent operating franchisees in almost all major cities and regions within Canada.

The company has enjoyed unprecedented success and has established incredible key partnerships since it began operating. In 2011, its first eligible year, The Garage Door Depot® and its parent company Canadian Access & Door Systems were recognized as being #96 among Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies by Profit magazine. This recognition has continued in 2012, 2013 and even in 2014!
We’ve also been designated by the Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) as a “Franchisees Choice” for 2014 and 2015. This is a great honour since the designation is decided by our own franchisees direct and honest feedback to the CFA.
We’ve also done a great deal to align ourselves with some great partners. Our vendors support us across the country and in many markets we work with some well-known Canadian retail companies such as Costco, Home Depot, Lowes and Canadian Tire.
So if you’re looking for a great company that can help you with your garage door needs, be they commercial, residential or even specialty, look no further. The Garage Door Depot is your one and only call to make! We can’t wait to work with you!
