About Stephen Greenford
Stephen Greenford, Proprietor of CanInspect Inc, was a home inspector residing in Quebec.
He would fly at his own expense from Montreal on a regular basis to attend the CAHPI Toronto chapter meetings.
His goal was to learn as much as possible from his colleagues about the profession and eventually to start a chapter in the Montreal-Quebec area.  He contributed a great deal to the meetings he attended in Toronto.
On July 12th, 1989 Stephen was inspecting a commercial 4-storey building in Montreal.  He climbed four storeys on the exterior fire escape, but to reach the roof he had to use a ladder on the side of the building. When Stephen was two metres from the roof, the ladder pulled away from the building and he fell 14 metres to the ground tragically dying on impact.
His dedication to the Profession did not go unnoticed and an award was set up in his honour in 1990.

This award, in Stephen Greeford’s name, reminds us of all those whose hard work and dedication have made this profession what it is today.
