Are Symmons plumbing products common in Canada?

I have a Symmons shower valve that leaks and therefore needs servicing - if not replacement (the assembly may be siezed and therefore unable to replace cartridge). I like the shower valve because it has an integrated shower/bathtub spout diverter on the trim, therefore, no need to bend down to the actual tub spout to switch between shower and tub.

However, it seems that plumbers only service mainstream brands like Meon and Delta, which unfortunately do not have such a streamlined shower/tub operation.

Should I source the symmons replacement valve and hire a plumber to replace, solder, install the new repalcement valve?

This is the shower/tub system: https://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/41p ... L._AC_.jpg

Most plumbers will service all makes of faucets if they can get access to the repair parts.
