We’re Expanding!


Investing in our Customers and The Future: Project Phoenix

Setting the stage for growth into 2020 and beyond, we are excited to announce our move to a brand new location on Salish Sea Way. Project Phoenix is a committee of staff and managers that will be guiding the transition process for moving in to our new warehouse and office called Salish Sea Way. We’ve built this portal to ensure that everyone who works with us can stay up to date with all the details.

If you have questions, reach out to your contact at Canadian Alliance, or check the list of Pillar Leaders below.

We will transition operations from our Elmbridge location to Salish Sea Way no later than June 29th 2020. There will be no disruptions of service for our customers. Further information for our operations at our Derwent and Hopcott locations will be detailed at a later time.
