We are an Ontario based blacksmithing and fabrication business focused
Forged in Canada is a business built on passion.
Currently in his 36th year of service with the Canadian Armed Forces, Lanny is beginning the transition from military service to new business owner. He had taken most of his training with Don, so it seemed like a logical progression to become the new owner of Forged in Canada. His passions include history (specifically ancient Roman Legions), creating metalwork and spending time with his family.
Upon retiring from the military after 17 years service, Shane transitioned to blacksmithing, completing the Artist Blacksmith course at Fleming College in Haliburton, On. He has worked on numerous projects for local residents and organizations, as well as large projects, recently collaborating with the Ontario Artist Blacksmith Association (OABA).
Don MacKay, a master blacksmith and the previous owner of Forged in Canada, worked for many years as a blacksmith for the Rideau Canal National Historic Site of Canada, an UNESCO World Heritage Site in an 1843 heritage forge. As a blacksmith for this unique site, Don MacKay forged his skills using only traditional techniques and equipment. Don is just beginning to enjoy a well earned retirement.
