The words we live by.

Our core values shape our business and our relationships, and everyone here at Start.ca plays an important role in bringing them to life, each and every day.

Friendly

Kind, respectful and ready to make you smile.

Honest

Holding ourselves to high moral standards and doing things the right way.

Reliable

Always there and ready to help.

Smart

Seeing things differently and finding creative solutions.

Forward

Always trying new things and making them better.

Involved

Supporting local initiatives and being part of the community.

It began with a friendship.

“What happens when you treat everyone with respect? One thing you get is friendliness, and a diverse group of people that love doing what they do.”


In 1995, Peter and Darryl - two friends from college - began building a business in a spare bedroom. But they didn't want to create just another technology company - they wanted to create a people company. Today, that's exactly what we are.
It all boils down to making sure everyone has a positive experience. We're growing quickly, thanks to customers like you. But our core values and what we believe in won’t change - we’ll always give you fast, friendly service. And here you thought we were just an internet company.
