a few words about us

Our mission

Canadian Drone Works was born of the need for fast accurate comprehensive airborne and subsurface data collection, analysis and reporting in Western Canada.


We own and use advanced UAVs (drones) and UUVs (remotely operated unmanned underwater vehicles).

We have payloads to deliver centimeter accurate photogrammetry, maps, high resolution inspection photos, thermal imagery, lidar. 

 Our largest drone can fly multiple payloads to increase the efficacy of each flight. 

 We have the vessels and vehicles to deliver the service when and where you need it.

 We have a robust suite of computers in-house that allow our specialist to process the data and produce your report, map, or video quickly and efficiently. 

 Operational, environmental, and individual safety is integral to our operation. 

 Our professional operators have experience in fixed wing, rotary wing aircraft, marine operations, many years of drone experience and are certified by Transport Canada for advanced and BVLOS operations.

 We are night vision and thermal imagery capable for operations that won't wait for daylight.
