Michael Berrington


After graduating with his Marketing Diploma from BCIT in 2001, Michael started working in Finance when a great opportunity was offered to him with Trades Labour Corporation. Michael started his employment at Trades Labour Corporation in early 2002 at the Vancouver and Surrey locations. By 2003, Michael and his mom opened the doors to TLC Calgary. Since then, Michael has opened locations in Winnipeg and Victoria. Recently he purchased his mom’s shares so she could retire from the business and move back to BC.

Michael believes that you must work hard to earn the trust of your clients and work even harder to keep it. This philosophy has garnered him much success and made TLC the largest Labour provider in the Calgary market. As competitors come and go, Michael continues to grow his company and dominate the marketplace by providing his clients with exactly what they want, when they want it.  

With over 12 years of experience behind him, Michael teamed up with a 20 year veteran in “Skilled Trades Staffing” to open up Ultimate Tradesmen. Together with business partner Thomas Sara, they are quickly gaining market share with their skilled trades staffing company. With close to 35 years experience between Michael and Tom in Labour Consulting, Skilled Trades Staffing, Construction, Marketing and Business, they are the “Ultimate” management team to lead this organization.
