Gold Standard Program

MSCC’s National ‘Gold Standard’ Program is a tightly integrated system of two designations. MSCC Gold Standard Contractor Program and MSCC Technician Certification. MSCC Gold Standard Contractor Program is a company-wide designation demonstrating professionalism and competency in several ‘best business practices’. The MSCC Technician Certification is a designation for journeymen within the plumbing and HVAC disciplines.

Developed in partnership with contractors, service professionals, building owners and facility managers, the MSCC designation establishes an ‘elite’ level of service recognition.

MSCC is very proud of its National Gold Standard Contractor Program. MSCC offers both the MSCC Gold Standard Contractor designation for member companies and the MSCC Certified Technician designation for technicians of member companies.


Building owners and facility managers know how vital it is to find the right mechanical service partner to keep their building’s critical HVAC/R systems running at peak efficiency. So how do they find the very best companies and technicians? The Mechanical Service Contractors of Canada (MSCC) has created the MSCC Gold Standard Contractor Program which is a designation for service excellence awarded to an elite group of mechanical service contractors, and individual technicians.

MSCC Gold Standard Contractors and Certified Technicians are top professionals that have demonstrated that they offer customers unsurpassed support, quality workmanship, and safe and reliable service. MSCC Certification is achieved on two levels.


The MSCC Gold Standard Contractor designation is awarded to outstanding contractors who have demonstrated industry-leading practices in a number of key competencies (safety, training, documentation, customer service) along with having technicians who are MSCC Certified.
