Canadian Based Operators


cbo

Canadian Base Operators (CBO) was the first civilian service supplier at any military base in Canada to take on all non-military service functions. Although CBO has extended its services to many other bases and armouries for the Department of National Defence (DND) (Facilities Maintenance work on Base Petawawa for Defence Construction Canada, for example), we still remain at the 4th Canadian Division Training Centre in Meaford, Ontario. There, we provide complete support for over 2,000 Canadian soldiers in training, including 100 buildings and structures on 17,000 acres.

For the KF Aerospace Team at the Canadian Forces Flight/Aviation Training Centre located in Southport, Manitoba, CBO is responsible for the Support Services Division of the 20-year contract with DND, encompassing operations and maintenance for the airfield and associated facilities.

In Alberta, Canadian Base Operators also works in the aviation support field as we operate and maintain the Aerodrome at the Albian Sands Oil Sands Project for Shell and maintain and operate the Shell hangar in Calgary. We work at the municipal airport in Peace River providing ground services and also for Canadian Natural Resources Limited at the Primrose aerodrome in a similar capacity. 

At numerous locations across the Canadian arctic, CBO meets the challenges of providing facilities management and operations for the North Warning System (NWS). A unique element of the NWS is our ability and commitment to work with the Inuit aboriginal community - a satisfying and challenging aspect of arctic work that we embrace fully.
