About Coldfront Labs


Seriously approachable web experts.

Coldfront Labs is a team of people who are passionate about the web. We love what we do.


We specialize in building web applications using the Drupal open-source content management framework. Alongside our Drupal developers, we have experts covering the entire scope of creating web applications from deployment, to performance tuning, to content creation.



Our technologies of choice

OpenSource is at the heart of our business. We contribute to several projects, which in turn allows us to build exceptional applications.

  • Drupal
  • Apache Solr
  • jQuery/jQuery Mobile
  • Node.js
  • Linux
  • MySQL/MariaDB
  • PHP


We strongly believe that communication is of utmost importance when creating a solution that works for you. Our staff is bilingual and we’re constantly building and improving the tools we use to communicate with each other and our clients.

We love what we do

Coldfront itself came from a group of friends spending time writing code and contributing it back to the OpenSource community. We write code in our spare time and we’re lucky enough to do it as our day job, too.


Since we contribute back to OpenSource projects, we know our code will be scrutinized by a large group of developers and organizations. We’ve been bred to write quality code that is well documented and works as desired. We take the time to do it right the first time.

Our history

Based in Ottawa, Coldfront Labs Inc. is a privately held corporation. The company was founded in 2007 as a partnership between alumni from the University of Ottawa’s Computer Science Student Association. For two years, we developed custom desktop- and web-applications for businesses in the Ottawa region. We moved exclusively to developing web applications with Drupal in 2009. As of 2011, Coldfront Labs became Coldfront Labs Inc. and we’ve continued to build Drupal applications for higher education, government, enterprise, as well as small to medium-sized businesses in various sectors from coast to coast in North America.
