About Us

At Lakeshore Glass and Mirror we use only the highest quality local Canadian suppliers for our glass, while all of the hardware that we use is
Canadian, US or imported from world-class German and other European manufacturers.


This standard of product excellence, combined with our attention to detail, allows us to create a superior final product that will last for many years.

Over half of a century of doing business, we have managed to develop strong relationships with the best suppliers and manufacturers in the glass industry.

This gives us the advantage of having quick and consistent access to the highest quality glass and related products.

This being the case, we are able to complete projects in short timeframes. Your orders are followed and supported by our team from measure through fabrication to install, ensuring a quality finished project.

We believe that our customers deserve the highest standard of craftsmanship and customer service and we strive to provide this in all aspects of our business dealings.

Lakeshore Glass is a proven leader in the glass service industry and we take our reputation very seriously. Our expertise is often requested by leading Toronto architects and design firms.

We will not stop working until you are fully satisfied with the final product.


The Lakeshore Glass and Mirror legacy is the product of a multigenerational endeavour which extends back to the mid 1930’s when John Spohn opened a glass business on Richmond Street West in Toronto.


John’s dedication to his craft allowed him to build up a solid reputation for delivering high quality products on projects of any scope and scale. His clientele quickly grew to include names such as The Ontario Stockyards, Numerous Office Buildings, Goodyear, Firestone and Christie Cookies among others.


The business established itself as the premier glass provider in the area and continued its operations until 1974 when John retired and sold the business.

However, in 1975, upon request from former clients, who were unable to find the superior standard of workmanship from other businesses that he had previously provided, John and his Wife, Jeanette approached their son, Alan, with the idea of reopening a small glass service business together to serve select clients.


It was at this time that Lakeshore Glass & Mirror Inc. was born. Alan eventually took over the company from his father and continues to run it to this day. Alan is still asked about John & Jeanette by the many returning customers reminiscing about the “old days”.
