Who We Are

We are Magic Bullet - a small group of talented and dependable IT experts dedicated to helping small or medium sized companies with their technology needs.  

Our fearless leader Blair McLeod started Magic Bullet in 1995. He found that people needed down-to-earth, honest, easy-to-talk-to tech support, willing to solve any type of issue - big or small. So, that’s what he created - an IT company that listens to your needs, understands your business, and solves your tech problems. It’s as simple as that.  

Whatever your field - from architecture to consulting to mining or financial services -  your customers are counting on you. In turn, you rely on technology to get the job done. Your computer, the Internet, your cell phone, the telephone system, your office servers, the printer – these are a means to an end. 

So, when email stops working, your laptop needs upgrading, you’re not sure what accounting software to buy, or your cell phone won’t sync, we can help. There’s no unintelligible tech-talk here, just straightforward support and advice so you can get the job done.

We will learn how your business works and help you fix your IT issues so that you can focus on your day-to-day tasks. 

Whether we are working remotely or doing an on-site visit, we think of ourselves as a member of your team. We don’t partner or “rep” for any hardware, software or online services, so you can be sure that we are always recommending what’s best for you. We’ll help you fix, choose, install, set up, back up, move, improve – whatever you need to keep things running smoothly.  Give us a call or send us an email and your IT questions will be answered!  

Magic Bullet and the Community

We aren’t hoarders (at least we don’t think we are), we just don’t like filling up landfills with tech that is still useful! Why create waste if we don’t have to? Instead, we support our community by distributing old hardware to people in need like refugees or recent immigrants to Canada. We recycle, reuse, and repurpose what we can and get it working for someone who can really use it. 

Everyone has IT needs - even shoestring not-for-profits. We provide favourable rates for charitable organizations to help companies that may not be able to afford to hire IT help otherwise.
