Garber began acting at the age of nine, joining the University of Toronto's Hart House at age 15. In 1967, he formed a folk band called The Sugar Shoppe with Peter Mann, Laurie Hood and Lee Harris. The group enjoyed moderate success, even performing on "The Ed Sullivan Show" and "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" before breaking up.

Garber has worked in various American and Canadian movies and television, including James Cameron's Titanic (1997), in which he played the shipbuilder Thomas Andrews, and CTV's "E.N.G."

He continues to be a sought-after theatrical performer in musicals, comedies, and dramatic productions. In 2007, he played the male lead in a critically hailed Encores! presentation of "Follies" alongside Donna Murphy. In January 2018, Garber replaced David Hyde Pierce as Horace Vandergelder in the Tony-winning Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly!
