Who We Are
Defence Construction Canada (DCC) is a Crown corporation that provides innovative and cost-effective contracting, construction contract management, infrastructure and environmental services, and lifecycle support for Canada's defence requirements.
Our Client-Partners are the Assistant Deputy Minister Infrastructure and Environment (ADM IE) Group at the Department of National Defence (DND) and the Communications Security Establishment (CSE).
What We Do
When DND decides to initiate a project, it contacts DCC to procure and manage the associated project contracts on its behalf. These projects range from innovative to traditional: from control towers to dockyards, from hangars to tank maintenance facilities, from community centres to accommodation facilities, and from roads to sewer and water systems. Some projects may simply involve everyday maintenance work. Others are more complex with very high security requirements.
DCC's resources are divided among five service lines. See below for more information.
How We Work
DCC is a unique organization in many ways—not exactly like a government department, but not completely like a private sector firm, either. As part of an organization that is at arm's length from government and operates on a fee-for-service basis, DCC employees manage the procurement process, from competing tenders to awarding contracts, and then managing the contracts at the job site. Private-sector contractors and consultants perform the actual work in the execution of the contracts that DCC puts in place.
