Introducing Barry MacKinnon and the Positive Plumbing & Mechanical Inc. team

​​In May 2014, I proudly opened Positive Plumbing & Mechanical Inc.

Prior to opening my own business, I was employed as an apprentice and a licensed plumber in both British Columbia and Ontario from 2009-2013. In these roles, I gained valuable hands-on experience in commercial, residential plumbing and gas, as well as mechanical systems and equipment.

In 2012, I graduated from the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) for training, with my Red Seal Plumbing License, G2 Gas Certificate, and Cross Connection Control Certificate.

Between 2007 and 2009, I completed m
y Class 4 Power Engineering training and received my Red Seal in the trade. I became the Lead Engineer at Fairmont Chateau Whistler (FCW). I left the FCW with extensive training in leadership, troubleshooting, coordinating employee training, health and safety-and, most importantly, customer service. Throughout my tenure, I received multiple awards for service, dedication and performance.
