About Tundra Rescue

HomeAbout Tundra Rescue


Tundra provides confined space, rope access, and associated industrial services and training in all kinds of working environments.


Our History

Tundra Rescue was founded in 2011 by Canadian military veterans with expertise in mountain operations and a vision to create a consultancy that could provide types of specialist rescue assistance to organisations working in remote areas.

We completed our first rope access work assignment on a wind turbine in late 2011 and today, following various changes in management and strategy and a lot of growth over the last decade, we are a recognised specialist provider of industrial and commercial safety, maintenance, technical access, rope access and training solutions in all kinds of working environments and sectors.

Our customers range from small local companies to some of Canada’s largest and most well-known firms and brands.

We are called Tundra Rescue but we offer much more than just rescue services.


Our Locations

Our main office is situated in the Cleaview township of Ontario, but our flexible operational model allows us to support customers throughout Ontario, with our typical worksites include the Toronto, Hamilton, Mississauga, Brampton, Niagara, Barrie, Kingston, Oshawa, Sudbury and Ottawa areas, and we have completed tasks successfully both nationally in different provinces in Canada, and internationally.

Our mission is to bring a dynamic and customer-focused approach to delivering the highest-quality rescue, access, safety and associated training and technical solutions.
