Etna Ceramic Tile was established in 1978 by my father, Antonio Patane’. He brought my mother, brothers and sister from Catania, Sicily in 1969.

He originally started “Tony’s Painting and Decorating” in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Shortly after that he specialized in ceramic tile installations due to high demand.

After the family braved several prairie winters, they decided it was time to move to Vancouver in 1977 where Etna Ceramic Tile was established, named after the active volcano in Catania, Sicily.

I was born and raised here, working alongside my father from an early age. I went to work with my dad and learned the trade the “old school” way. “You godda do da job-a right, oh no do da job ad all” is the mantra that has been drilled into my head since day one.

He wanted people to know that we are Italian, and the best tile and stone work has been laid by Italians for centuries…“It’s in our blood.”
