The foresight to think big.
The vision to make it happen.

As a family-owned business, JDass Corp embodies the Canadian dream. We have been committed to excellence, superior service, and sustainable, yet ambitious, growth since day one. This passion continues to the present day, where a second generation has taken the helm and our portfolio of brands has expanded into multiple industries that serve clients across Canada. Explore a timeline of our journey below.

1986

The Dass family arrives in Canada in the search of new opportunities and opens their flagship electronics store, Teletime, at Yonge & Dundas Square in Downtown Toronto.

In just two short years, Teletime expanded to five locations throughout the GTA (Greater Toronto Area). Building upon their success, the Dass family, led by patriarch Jaswant Dass, begins making savvy investments in Toronto real estate.

1998

With a growing real estate portfolio, JDass Corp launches a hospitality division with the construction of a new banquet hall and event space in Brampton, Ontario. 

JDass Corp spent the early 2000’s expanding this part of their business with the construction of two new facilities, Woodbine Hotel and Woodbine Banquet Hall.

2009

JDass Corp continues to leverage substantial land holdings by developing dozens of industrial and commercial properties across the GTA.

Over the next decade, JDass will take advantage of the booming Canadian real estate industry and evolve into a construction and land development powerhouse.

2018

JDass Corp sets its sights on a new venture, expanding into the world of steel and metal products. Dass Metal Products is founded on a tenet of “second to none service”.

With aggressive investment in cutting-edge technology, an exceptional team, and a state-of-the-art 100,000 sf steel service centre, Dass Metal Products grows into top player in the industry.

In 2022, Dass Metal Products will expand yet again with two new divisions; Dass Metal Studs and Dass Rebar.

Present day

With the acquisitions of Mississauga Convention Centre and Shanty Bay Golf Club, and a variety of e-commerce and brick-and-mortar retail businesses set to launch, including J.Dass Distillery, the future has never been brighter at JDass Corp.

We are thrilled to welcome staff to a brand new corporate headquarters, and in early 2023 we will be celebrating the grand opening of Food World Supermarket in Etobicoke, Ontario.
