About the RCOC By Kabir Shaal

The Restoration Contractors’ Organization of Canada is a non-profit association that represents the interests of 75% of the full-service restoration contractor locations in Canada. Additionally, the RCOC offers industry vendor participation through Supporting Membership status. Since 2010, the organization has worked on matters relating to health & safety, governmental and regulatory affairs, and business practices.

The RCOC is a run by an eight-member Board consisting of six Directors, a Vice Chair, and a Chair as well as an Associate Member representing the Restoration Industry Association (RIA). An Executive Director manages day-to-day operational matters. The Board meets regularly and conducts an Annual General Meeting that is open to all members.

All of the RCOC’s members service the insurance industry. Therefore, a core component of the RCOC’s mandate is to promote professionalism, training, and development amongst its members so that customers receive high-quality service that is transparent, consistent, and effective.

Our members invest significantly in specialized equipment and training. They employ sophisticated safety programs and carry appropriate insurance coverage. They operate 24 hours a day. Their employees are properly vetted. All members offer consistently high standards that ensure the well-being of employees and the satisfaction of customers.

The RCOC offers educational courses through an agreement with the Restoration Industry Association (RIA). The Canadian Council of the RIA oversees the educational agreement as well as other matters related to the RCOC and RIA. Members of the RCOC sit on the RIA Canadian Council.
