Our Mission

At Canex Building Supplies, our mission is to be the preferred supplier for builders and contractors in the single and multi-family residential, light industrial, and agricultural markets in the Lower Mainland and beyond.

All lumber yards are created equal: we all sell similar products for similar prices. What makes one different from another is the people: the people that run it and the level of service it provides. In order to be a leader in the industry we must work together as a team. From the order desk through the clean-up crew and the truck driver, each one of us has a responsibility to act as an ambassador to the company. The chain of events it takes to buy, sell, and deliver our products is only as strong as the weakest link in that chain.

We will provide our team with the best equipment, trucks, cranes, tools and training available in the industry. We are committed to provide a safe level of service to our clients second to none. We will continue to earn the respect and long term relationships with industry leaders both at the supply level as well as our client base.

Our team is a family. As with all families, communication and cooperation are key elements in a healthy relationship. The partners are committed to be available to coach and teach as needed.  We expect much but we also deliver; our staff will enjoy a wage, benefit program, and compensation package that are well above average for this industry.

We strive to positively contribute to the lives of our business partners – including customers, employees, suppliers and the communities we serve in a cooperative and sustainable manner.
