De Havilland Aircraft of Canada has announced plans to build a new aircraft manufacturing

The privately held company said the facility, called“De Havilland Field,” will be situated in
Wheatland County between the communities of Chestermere and Strathmore, Alberta.
De Havilland said it has acquired 600 hectares of land for the manufacturing plant that could
eventually employ up to 1,500 people in the area.
Construction on the plant is scheduled to begin next year (2023) and be at least partially
operational by 2025.
Once up-and-running, the Alberta-based plant will be the site of final assembly for the DHC-515
Firefighter aircraft, DHC Twin Otter, and the Dash 8-400 aircraft.
The amount of money being invested in developing the aircraft manufacturing plant was not
disclosed.
