For over 25 years, Canadian Base Operators has provided customized facilities management and logistical support services to clients in the Canadian Defence, aviation, and energy sectors. We are a performance-based contractor, committed to partnering with our clients to ensure the long-term success of their highly specialized facilities and operations.

With our Corporate Office located in Collingwood, Ontario we provide hard and soft facilities management services, and airport services across Canada. We are also experienced in providing turnkey facility management services for aerodromes and complete maintenance and management solutions for remote research and surveillance sites in the most critical environments. We draw on our real-world experience managing high security and specialized facilities to provide our clients with quality customized solutions.

Meeting the Toughest Challenges in the most Critical Environments

Canadian Base Operators has a wide range of knowledge and expertise in facilities management in remote, diverse and high security environments. Industries with these unique environments and high security needs such as airports, mining, oil and gas, and remote arctic sites have all sought out the quality service that Canadian Base Operators’ consistently provides.

CBO has honed a facility management philosophy which aligns with industry practices specifically suited for remote locations. CBO is focused on safety first, understanding that working in harsh climates is often dangerous. CBO provides superior training and ensures our employees are equipped with all the tools necessary to securely meet environmental challenges. CBO constantly assesses constricting factors such as the need for seasonal access to resources, limited energy supply, and the reliance on airstrip or helipad operation as the sole entry-point to our work sites.

Outstanding service, safety, and flexibility: these are CBO’s core strengths.
