Domco Group of Canada Limited has 76 years of experience and counting. We have been in operation since 1945, offering integrated remote site solutions in camp and facility management. Our programs range from remote food catering to hospitality services, each led by passionate teams immersed with experience and expertise.

We have professional staff with a strong Indigenous presence through our extensive First Nation partnerships. We have operated projects in almost every province in Canada, giving us a network of resources and tools ready to be shared.

Our mission is to offer peace of mind to our clients with quality services and tailored accommodation. Our vision is to endorse our core values and practices, namely by mentoring the Indigenous communities, creating opportunities, and providing a healthy and safe environment for the people working in Canada’s remote locations.

We are a corporation that has deep Canadian roots, and we are independently owned. Over all these years, we have developed a reputation of trustworthy and respectful relations with our clients and Indigenous partnerships. We strive to continue building synergistic long-term relations, supporting projects from start-up phases all the way to production.

Our Clients
Case Studies

Our experience is one of our most powerful assets when it comes to taking on a remote camp project. This has provided us with the versatility to fulfill projects in various phases. We can start a small-scale camp early in exploration and adapt to your progressive needs, or we can jump into an established project and counteract ongoing challenges with creative solutions.

We have proven to overcome logistical barriers such as transportation costs and hiring and training qualified staff. We adapt to any geographic location or remote environment. Most importantly, we take a strategic approach to maximize the wellness and efficiency of your workers while minimizing your cost.

Over the years, we have made our mark in the mining industry, serving the teams of mining clients and construction contractors seeking resource explorations and production. Our remote camp and facility management infrastructures are dynamic in a way that we can apply them to any remote environment and industry. We have done so in other industries such as forestry, and we are in the process of studying new industries such as energy, oil, and gas.
