The Beginning

In May of 1957 a small trucking company named C and D Trucking (Carter and Dafoe) was founded in Kitimat British Columbia. This was the start of a 60 year journey, that began with the Carter family being bought out and the company being moved to Calgary Alberta in 1960.

Our Growth

Dafoe Trucking grew from 4 trucks to 6 which turned into 10. Once Dafoe expanded to 15 trucks we had to rent our own shop and, eventually, buying a piece of land where we operate from today. We have 20 acres east of Calgary with 2 state of the art mechanical shops being built and operational fall 2017.
