When newlyweds Paul and Kaija Kangas immigrated to Canada from Finland in 1982, they were just in their early twenties. As for so many other immigrants, Canada promised to be the land of many opportunities for young arrivals.
Kaija became the recent graduate from the home economics institution in Finland. She achieved a diploma in the fields of: Farming Technology, Institutional Chef, Home Economics teacher and Cleaning Services. Growing up on a small farm in western Finland she learned at an early age the meaning of hard work. It was perhaps that common-sense & hands-on upbringing that prompted her to choose her career in the maid service industry.
Unlike Kaija, Paul grew up in an urban working class family. As a young boy he’d help his father at the furniture factory. He realized that his career would evolve around the furniture industry and achieved a diploma at the Wood Technology Institute as a Master Wood Carver. He then later partnered in the multi million-dollar furniture manufacturing operation in Montreal.
In 1996, living in Calgary at the time, the couple researched the maid service industry. They were surprised to learn that many of these companies were poorly managed and training of the staff was almost non-existent. Their services often start out great, but then, over time the cleaning quality diminishes or the customer service disappears, or both.
It was then when Paul armed with his entrepreneurial spirit and THINK BIG attitude, became committed to establishing a reliable and professionally managed maid service. Finn Maids Services was born. Today, Finn Maids has become one of the leading maid service companies in the Calgary area. In 2011, After the couple’s decision to relocate to Vancouver, the company changed hands.
