GetAssist AnniversariesCanada’s Private Social Network Celebrates Third Anniversary in Calgary & First in Mississauga!
GetAssist Inc. opened its doors in Calgary October 26th, 2015 and the rest is history. GetAssist has been setting up offices across Canada ever since.

Last year, GetAssist began serving the Mississauga, Ontario community.

Located at 5780 Timberlea Blvd #106, Mississauga, ON L4W 4W8 the office provides brick and mortar support to local GetAssist users and businesses.

“GetAssist answers the question of ‘What’s in it for me?’” CEO Bruce Fikowski said. “For perhaps the first time ever, GetAssist creates a nexus where small businesses, entrepreneurs and individuals connect for a purposeful online social experience.”

GetAssist works through businesses purchasing memberships for a nominal fee to gain access to the network and narrowly tailored sales leads. The network remains completely free and 100 percent private to social users, who remain anonymous to the point of sale.

In addition to Mississauga, GetAssist serves Vaughan, Scarborough, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver.

This year GetAssist opened its first Network Centre in Winnipeg, MN.

We are looking forward to many more anniversaries to be shared with communities all across Canada and beyond!
