In Memoriam: Brian Francis Wright
1949 – 2022

Brian Wright was an amazing bright light in our industry, not only in Ontario but across Canada. His enthusiasm and positive outlook will be missed. He was always first to help you out and get you what you needed. Making you laugh all along the way.

Another great trait of Brian’s was to make you feel you weren’t alone, whether it was your first day or 30th year, he was empathetic, a great listener and probably had a similar story to make you feel more confident.

His many years as a technician, manager, and supplier has touched many in our industry and he will be missed by all those that knew him professionally and personally.

Attention Members

It has been brought to our attention that an insurance company has been contacting our Membership and spreading misinformation about other insurance providers.

SPMAO wishes to clarify that HUB International and Marsh Canada continue to be the endorsed and supported providers of insurance coverage for the Membership. SPMAO members are eligible for discounts on insurance coverage.

For HUB, contact Steve Primiani at 905-948-2896 or steve.primiani@hubinternational.com.
For Marsh, contact Rosemary Bratscher at 519-663-5298 or rosemary.bratscher@marsh.com.

Rat Subsidy Program – Region of Peel

The Region of Peel has recently extended the program until November 30, 2022. They extended it without SPMAO consultation (as previously agreed to) and without opening the bidding process to all interested companies (they state that they have pre-screened and selected Region of Peel-approved pest control vendors to provide fair pricing and quality control for residents when dealing with any rat infestations on the exterior of their property).

If you feel this is an unfair and anti-competitive process we encourage you to contact the Region of Peel.

General contact us information: Business hours: Monday – Friday 8am to 5pm.
Phone number: 905-791-7800 Toll-free: 1-888-919-7800
