Headquartered in Toronto, founder Jay Hennick set up FirstService with a Toronto-based commercial swimming pool management business in 1989.

It acquired the College Pro Painters franchise system and established its second wing, FirstService Brands, in 1989.

The Canadian firm went public in 1993, with a listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange. It also began trading on the NASDAQ platform in 1995.

After a spin-off transaction on June 1, 2015, the company separated from Colliers International Group Inc, a commercial real estate and investment management firm. As a result, FirstService became an independent, public company.

FirstService acquired Century Fire Protection in 2016. Century Fire Protection, a US-based firm, provides complete fire protection solutions to industrial, commercial, institutional and residential clients.

FirstService claims that its top line grew by 15 per cent and delivered organic growth of 4 per cent in 2020.

With the acquisition of Aegis Fire Protection in Kansas City and Cornet Fire in Washington, DC, the company reportedly expanded its geographic footprint.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the company reportedly provided various health and wellness program to its customers and clients.
