US-headquartered First Onsite Property Restoration has continued to grow its Canadian footprint with a new branch in Regina, Saskatchewan.

This latest branch marks the ninth capital city location for First Onsite in Canada. It also intends to deepen the property restoration company’s connection with commercial, insurance, and residential customers in western Canada.

First Onsite has been operating in and around the Regina area for several years, dispatching teams and resources as needed to cater to restoration projects for national clients. The decision to invest in a local facility was prompted by mounting requests from clients for an on-ground presence, the company said in its release.

Commenting on the Regina branch, Jamie Mackie, regional vice president – Prairies, underscored how First Onsite is continuing its growth strategy by opening branches in “areas that make geographical sense and allow us to offer improved coverage for our customers.”

“Regina was the next logical step for us in western Canada, and now we’re in every major city in the west,” said Mackie.

“This is a great location for us given that Regina is on a major trucking and train route that follows The Trans-Canada Highway through the prairie provinces, with plenty of commercial clients and a growing residential base.”

Heading the operations at the new branch is Kernon Maxwell, an industry veteran who currently manages the Saskatoon branch. His responsibilities have expanded to include the Regina branch, according to First Onsite.

The opening of First Onsite’s latest Canadian branch comes after it became a silver sponsor of the Canadian Association of Managing General Agents (CAMGA).

As part of its sponsorship, the company participated in CAMGA’s Claims Summit on November 15, 2023. It participated in a panel discussion on claims mitigation and how new technology can be utilized to expedite the life cycle of insurance claims.
