Asbestos Products in Canada including company information

The most common answer to the question, where were you exposed to asbestos is - I don’t know. Particularly with the shock of recent diagnosis, those that worked with products that contained asbestos as opposed to raw asbestos are not aware of the wide range of materials that contained asbestos within the product.

Many asbestos manufacturing corporations branched into the Canadian market by having a Canadian subsidiary. Montreal was the home base for many of these companies as the source of raw asbestos was close at hand. The finished materials could then be loaded on lake freighters, ships, or trains for transport to other destinations in Canada. The province of Quebec was a strong supporter of the asbestos industry and offered incentives to corporations to manufacture in Quebec.

When attempting to reconstruct an individual’s exposure history we find that images, or pictures, are the most useful material to start the memories and therefore the conversation.

We have obtained information from the Canadian Trademark office. The Trademarks have either expired or been expunged. These images were registered, in many cases, in the early part of the 20th century. The images are poor quality but included as a picture says a thousand words.

This list may be shorter than those you may locate on other lawyers’ websites. We have included only those applicable to Canada.

Working with products manufactured by these companies put you and your family at risk. If you have developed mesothelioma, contact us to get more information regarding compensation available to you from these companies.
