Inuktun Sighting #46: Dougness Holdings Flush with Work

Today’s #InuktunInTheWild sighting comes from Inuktun’s very own backyard, featuring long-time client Dougness Holdings who is performing a flush/video program for the City of Nanaimo. The Mission-based sewer maintenance company was founded in 1970 and run as a family business for nearly 40 years. Bill Cameron, the founder’s nephew, purchased the company in 1980 and Dougness Holdings continues to serve contractors and municipalities across British Columbia. While Dougness’s work is spread out all over the place, they have been getting lots of contracts on Vancouver Island and recently performed remote inspections in Campbell River.
