ontario coating inspectors

As Canada’s most populous province, and the home of The Coating Inspector’s head office, we service all of Ontario. From urban industry to remote job sites, we’ve done coating inspections for a wide variety of Ontario’s industrial sector. 

Ontario’s largest trading partner is Michigan, America. Ontario’s manufacturing capacity accounts for over 50% of Canada’s total manufacturing exports. The Golden Horseshoe region along the great lakes allows for access via container ships, allowing for a robust marine industry.

The province is home to several large industries, including automotive manufacturing, information technology, and financial services. The energy sector is also well-developed, with a mix of traditional and renewable energy sources.

The automotive manufacturing industry is one of the largest contributors to Ontario’s economy, with several large automobile manufacturers located in the province, such as General Motors, Ford, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. These companies employ tens of thousands of workers and produce millions of vehicles annually.

Ontario’s information technology sector is also a significant contributor to the economy, with several high-tech companies operating in the province. These companies specialize in software development, telecommunications, and other related fields.

The financial services industry is another critical contributor to the province’s economy. Several large banks and insurance companies have their headquarters in Ontario, and the sector employs tens of thousands of workers.

In terms of energy, Ontario has a diverse mix of traditional and renewable energy sources. The province has several nuclear power plants that generate a significant portion of the province’s electricity. Ontario also has a substantial hydroelectric power generation capacity, with several large dams and hydroelectric plants in operation.

Renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, are becoming increasingly important in Ontario’s energy mix. The province has several wind farms in operation, with more planned in the future. Ontario also has a significant solar power generation capacity, with several large solar farms in operation.

Ontario has set ambitious targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and transitioning to a low-carbon economy. The province has a plan to phase out coal-fired power generation by 2030 and increase the use of renewable energy sources.

In conclusion, Ontario’s industrial and energy sector is diverse, with a mix of large industries, such as automotive manufacturing and financial services, and a well-developed energy sector that utilizes both traditional and renewable energy sources. The province has set ambitious targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and transitioning to a low-carbon economy, which will likely lead to further development of the renewable energy sector.

The Ring of Fire contains one of the largest mineral reserves of Chromite in North America and Ontario. Currently, there are talks to develop this area with a $3.3 billion investment for infrastructure which would provide immense economic benefit. 

To the north, the dominant industry is pulp and paper, supporting the Northern Ontario community and the rest of Canada.

Hamilton contains Ontario’s steel manufacturing base, notably Stelco and Dofasco–exporting 30% of Canada’s steel production alone. Ontario also produces more cars than Michigan, with its Chrysler plants in Windsor and Bramalea, GM car production facilities in Oshawa& Ingersoll, as well as a Ford and Toyota assembly plant in the province.

Our process

our coating inspection process

We have a tried and true methodology for assessing and prevention corrosion through our ISO-standardized and client-customized workflow.



A maintenance survey determines the coating conditions of a surface. Surveys are used to create a maintenance schedule for re-coating and touch-up applications.



The Coating Inspector performs testing for a wide range of coating applications. We test for conformity, compatibility, performance, coat thickness, hardness, adhesion, and finishes.



Once testing has been completed, we provide our detailed recommendations in a report. This ensures that all aspects of the survey are considered and addressed.


Coating Specifications

All jobs are conducted according to industry standards: NACE/AMPP, ISO 9001:2015 and CSA/SSPC in Canada, ASTM and ISO for international clients.

ISO 45001 certified organisations have identified and operate to regulatory requirements through enforcing procedures for compliance with legislation. Improved identification of hazards and risk management, involving all levels of the organisation through setting objectives, targets and documented responsibilities are recognised by regulators as a commitment to safe working conditions and continuous improvement.”

We have been certified in continuous improvement and service to our compliance.

We are commited to impeccable client service & employee safety.


The AMPP (Formerly know as The National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE)) is a globally recognized certification body to certify and train corrosion engineers.

With over 36,000 members globally, it is the most recognized trade association of corrosion inspectors to ensure industry standards in the coating inspection industry.

Established in 1943, it serves to train corrosion inspectors, enforce industry standards, certify engineers, publish and research corrosion inspection techniques and journals, as well as provide a standardized approach to corrosion inspection and prevention.

NACE “equips society to protect people, assets and the environment from the adverse effects of corrosion.”

Every project, business and industrial assets are unique. Depending on the scope of work, location and amount of inspectors or work hours required for your project, the cost can vary. 

However, The Coating Inspector is committed to saving your business time, money and assets. The cost of equipment breakdown, shutdown or repair delays can cost your business far more resources than preventative maintenance, work and inspection.

Call, email or contact us via the form below with a bit more of information about your business. From there we’ll consult with you regarding your unique corrosion prevention requirements. 

From there we’ll provide you a comprehensive quote and scope of work, and then begin working together with you to keep your facility and equipment in top working area.

Primarily all across Canada and globally (depending on the project).
