ISSA Canada Building Service Contractor (BSC) Council


ISSA Canada's Building Service Contractor (BSC) Council was formed in October 2017 in an effort to strengthen the line of communication between the association and the BSC sector.

The purpose of this council is to provide input and consultation to ISSA Canada in order to improve the value of the association to building service contractors.

Comprised of 10 representatives from leading BSC companies Canada, the council meets quarterly to discuss matters which are top-of-mind with the sector as well as learn of new educational opportunities and certification programming being offered by ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association.
