Our Story

SIMA Group, established since 1991, was founded by a group of independent dealers. This association was the first goal of pooling the strengths and resources of its dealers in a structure of cooperative association to eliminate intermediaries with the manufacturer to manufacturer. This association has strengthened the competitiveness of each of our member stores. Our network now has about 50 stores across Canada and continues to grow. SIMA Group is the largest buying group of pools, spas, gazebos and patios in Canada.
