FirstService Residential Certified Vendors
We always strive to deliver the very best service to our clients. That’s why we are highly selective when it comes to recommending companies providing service to the communities we manage.
We seek businesses that share our commitment to on-time, on-target, and on-the-money customer service. If that describes your company, we invite you to become a FirstService Residential Certified Vendor.
We have teamed with Business Credentialing Services (BCS), an independent business credentialing company, to guarantee a fair and impartial review of vendors. BCS ensures that our current and potential vendors meet and maintain all minimum requirements. If your initial certificates of insurance or licenses are non-compliant, BCS will work directly with you and/or your insurance agent to obtain a compliant certificate or license.
We require vendors to abide by our Vendor Terms and Conditions. This is a process we go through to feel confident your company will take great care of our communities and residents.
Vendors who meet the requirements will become a FirstService Residential Certified Vendor. Two levels of certification are available:
- These vendors fulfill the minimum requirements outlined in the Terms and Conditions (see above) and have additional insured language on their Certificate of Insurance, as follows: "FirstService Residential and any of its managed communities."
- This classification enables all FirstService Residential Property Managers to refer your company to their Boards with the confidence that their Corporations are already covered by your insurance.
- These vendors fulfill the minimum requirements outlined in the Terms and Conditions (see above) and must have insured language on their Certificate of Insurance that names FirstService Residential as well as specific corporations.
- This designation allows our Property Managers to be confident in presenting your company to their Boards, but you must provide appropriate additional insured endorsements specific to each community for which you would like to provide services.
An annual fee of two-hundred and ninety-nine dollars ($299) will be paid directly to BCS for verifying that your relevant insurance coverage and licensing meet all FirstService Residential requirements.

Already a FirstService Residential Certified Vendor?
If you have already gone through the certification process, we appreciate that you have provided us with the insurance, business and license information we requested. This information will help our clients make informed vendor choices. Like us, your company is recognized for serving clients with integrity, so it is important we protect them from the risks and costs of engaging vendors who are not licensed and insured.
The FirstService Residential Vendor Certification Program gives you and your company an exciting new marketing opportunity. For a nominal fee, you can email your marketing materials to BCS at email@example.com and they’ll upload them into the vendor database that all of our managers will see. That makes it easy for our managers, who are always looking for great vendors, to learn about you. This service is only available to certified vendors. We hope it will become a way for you to grow your business.
