Can I purchase medical devices or equipment for shipping or resale outside of Canada?

I’m looking for a product from one of your vendors and don’t see it on your website. Can you get this for me?
Probably. We are the Canadian distributor for number of industry leading suppliers. If there is specific product you are looking for and are unable to find it on our website, we should be able to get it, and it may even be in stock. There are some products that our vendors sell, that are ineligible for legal importation to Canada. This is almost always due to a lack of Canadian licensing of that product. This is particularly applicable to medical kits.
What does Special Order/Backorder mean?
Our product catalog spans a wide quantity of items, often exceeding the storage facilities we have available. As well, some products sell faster than others, so it doesn't make sense to hold large volumes of stock in slow moving product. To that end, certain products are Special Order only, meaning that stock is not carried in the warehouse and must be ordered directly from the vendor before it can be supplied. Kindly note: special order items may qualify as final sale in certain instances
Backordered products refer to those items that are typically stocked, but we currently out of stock and still awaiting production by the vendor, or shipping into our warehouse. Our average lead times on backorded products range from 2 – 4 weeks, though some can take up to 12 weeks.

What is CTOMS all about?
CTOMS started as a training company, and first and foremost, CTOMS remains a training company. We believe that it is essential to first become effectively trained to rely on yourself and not your equipment. We believe it is essential to first become educated in order to make effective equipment choices that will enhance your knowledge and skill, not compensate for a lack thereof. And we believe that when you do choose your equipment, it needs to be best of breed and meet rigorous quality standards.
Being a training company first sets our priorities straight; our approach to 'marketing' is education. The decision to bring a product to market is based on requirement, research, data, critical evaluation, and common sense. We don't recommend a product because we carry it. We carry it because it is something we would pack in our own personal kit, and rely on with our own lives.
Is CTOMS hiring?
When CTOMS is looking for talent we post all of our open positions on our "Careers" page.
Additionally, we are always seeking talented Instructors. So if you think you have what it takes and your values, morals, ethics and attitude reflects our corporate Ethos please apply at email@example.com with an update resume and cover letter.
