The Garage Door Depot Vancouver
The Garage Door Depot of Greater Vancouver was founded in 2007 and is the flagship location for The Garage Door Depot nationally.
Our Relationship to Canadian Access & Door Systems Inc.
Canadian Access & Door Systems was founded in 2005 by industry veterans, Dean Carman and Dennis Keeling. The company was initially focused only on commercial and new construction opportunities in the Greater Vancouver marketplace. However, in 2007, it decided it needed to add consumer products and services. This is where and when The Garage Door Depot was born.
Since 2007 the two companies worked as one, offering commercial and residential products and services to both consumers and businesses. It wasn't until 2010 when Canadian Access & Door Systems decided to franchise The Garage Door Depot.
The franchised side of The Garage Door Depot is managed as an entirely separate operation. This allows Canadian Access & Door Systems and The Garage Door Depot of Greater Vancouver to remain focused on their customers and opportunities in Southwestern BC.

Blending the Brands in Greater Vancouver
Since 2007, we’ve handled our local business using both company names and brands. As we evolve, the intention is to have The Garage Door Depot brand come forward and have Canadian Access & Door Systems (CADS) step in to the background. CADS will remain the owner of the The Garage Door Depot of Greater Vancouver and will continue to operate with the same staff and at the same high standards as it always has. However, there will be one difference: It will be under only one brand – The Garage Door Depot.
