Citywide Locksmiths was established in 1962 by Harold and Rosalie Shearer as a mobile locksmith company in Toronto. They saw great potential in the fast growing local Toronto economy of the 1960s. In the beginning Harold was working out of one truck but together they built their business over the years, providing a wide variety of products and services out of a bricks and mortar location.

It has always been a family business. Today, the third generation of the Shearer family is proud to still own and operate Citywide as one of Toronto’s largest and most trusted locksmiths.

Our sister company ADH Fine Hardware (started by the family in 1986), is Toronto’s premier luxury door hardware supplier.  All ADH products include superior Citywide options for maximum security.
