Who We Are

In short, we are Canada’s go-to name for independent appraisal services.

The Canavan’s team of dedicated professionals is led by owner Maurice Anderson and managed by Paul Beauchamp. The team consists of highly trained and experienced appraisers and a tireless group of devoted support staff.

Our network is in place across Canada and the USA to meet all your appraisal and inspection needs. We have 30 appraisers in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, as well as a huge complement of appraisers throughout North America.

We have five highly skilled heavy equipment appraisers, as well as qualified and knowledgeable appraisers for Data Collection on Impact Collision services, classic car inspections, recreational vehicle inspections and marine craft inspections for boats under 44 feet. Most of our appraisers are trained auto body repair technicians.

In keeping with our commitment to excellence and continuous learning, most Canavan’s appraisers are red seal certified, are I-Car Gold Class professionals, and Canavan’s appraisers are members of the Automobile Insurance Appraisers Association.

Within our quality control division, Canavan’s has a dedicated review and auditing team that scrutinizes completed appraisal assignments.
