The story of La
CBF family

Forage CBF began operations in 1950 under the name Blais et Frères enr. In the late 1950s, Camille disassociated himself from his brothers and formed his own company, Camille Blais. In the early 1980s, his five sons became interested in the drilling business. It was then that Camille Blais & Fils Ltée was formed.

Over 70 years later, the company has extended the concept of family to the whole of La Famille CBF, which remains faithful to these family values. The Blais family, still very much at the head of the company, is proud to pass on its know-how and passion to the younger generations of the now large CBF family.
