The onset of 2001 brought about our 20th Anniversary. I am proud to say that Canadian Orthotics Laboratory has accomplished its ultimate goal of providing quality orthotics, in a faster turnaround time and at very competitive prices.
In the late 70's, as a practicing podiatrist, I found quality orthotics in the marketplace, but the manufacturers took too long to make them and they were too costly. I knew there had to be a better way. I began to work with different biomechanical specialists in North America to create my own designs and improve on the manufacturing process. My aim was to provide the best, most advanced and cost-effective orthotics for all of my patients' biomechanical abnormalities. What began as a search for a quality, timely and cost-effective orthotics manufacturer, ended up leading to the creation of Canadian Orthotics Laboratory in 1981.
Since COL's inception, it was vitally important to us that we provided you and your patients with the highest quality orthotic devices. We could give you no less than what I personally expected for my own patients. Quality, service and value were to be expected. Our ever-increasing lines of orthotics and our steady growth and expansion have been proof of our commitment to excellence.

Each COL orthotic incorporates functional design, quality materials and the highest standards in manufacturing quality. Our attention to detail throughout the manufacturing process - over 15 quality control checks before shipping - ensures that your prescription is durable, comfortable and prepared to your exact specifications.

COL has come a long way. As your needs have grown and diversified, so has COL. We keep in step with all the latest advances in biomechanics and orthotics fabrication. When new materials come onto the market, we experiment with them and test them thoroughly, as we insist our orthotics have comfort and longevity.
Over the years, your needs and challenges have
continually driven us to create and perfect varied and specialized
orthotics. We actively look for new materials, technologies and needs.
We do our research and test before we implement. Our lab is on the
cutting edge, using new materials, computerization and new
technologies, as demonstrated in our cast scanning, digital storage,
lab automation, utilization of CAD-CAM technology and our Direct Milled
