Mike Holmes      

Professional Contractor & HGTV Host

Mike Holmes is a professional contractor, television host, public speaker, educator, influencer and writer. As one of North America’s most trusted contractors, his no-nonsense, Make It Right® approach struck a chord with television audiences worldwide, leading him to be named Forbes’ Third Most Trustworthy Celebrity and Reader’s Digest’s Second Most Trusted Canadian. Today fans can watch Mike do what he does best in his new series, "Holmes Makes It Right." Holmes has built an international brand based on quality, integrity and trust.

With over 35 years of experience as a professional licensed contractor, he has completed over 220 home renovations and remodeling disaster projects, as well as 52 home inspections throughout his television career. His record breaking, award-winning series and specials are seen in over 90 countries worldwide.

After working in the building and renovation industry for more than 20 years, Holmes was asked to develop and host his own television series, "Holmes on Homes®," which became an international success and broke ratings records, solidifying his career in television. Since then he has been able to use television as a tool to educate homeowners on proper building code, what to look for in contractors and their rights as homeowners.

His passion and integrity to Make It Right® continue through his work as national spokesperson for SOS Children’s Villages Canada, where he has helped increase sponsorship by 2700% since 2005. In 2016, on his second trip with SOS Children’s Villages, Holmes along with his children, Mike Jr. and Sherry, visited several SOS villages in Kenya. Holmes is also a National Spokesperson for Skills Canada, WorldSkills Ambassador, honorary guest speaker for the 2009 GreenBuild conference and ‘Eminent Advisor to the Canadian Government’ for the COP15 in Copenhagen (United Nations’ conference on climate change).

Holmes' mission is to improve the building industry from the ground up and raise building standards across the board. He believes that educating the public at large on the importance of upholding building code and construction principles is essential to preserving and enhancing the safety and well-being of communities and households, both at home and abroad.
