About Us

Weatherby Trucking established itself as a company "Born and Raised in the North"(as was the owner) back in 1997 along with family roots in the YK Mining Industry since 1937. What started as a one man operation has grown to a company that employs 15-20 Northern hire employees during peak season. Being a family run business we take extra pride in the day to day operations and are very hands on from start to finish with our ongoing jobs. We are able to facilitate many diverse projects due to our extensive and varied inventory of equipment, a strong Health and Safety Policy and a drive to take on any challenges presented to us. With long term Customer and Vendor relationships, Weatherby Trucking shows commitment to both old and new clientele and looks forward to continuing to grow our business.
