In July 1975 Engelheim Charter began when Oliver & Gladys Engel purchased a school bus for transporting local youth to Saskatchewan Roughrider football games, Regina Pats hockey games, and camping trips throughout Western Canada, as well as bringing school tours to Saskatchewan from Alberta.
From the beginning, Oliver Engel had been the main driver, and his wife Gladys Engel has been managing the business. The business has steadily grown in response to a demand for our excellent personalized service.
We operate under full authority in Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, and under limited authority in Manitoba.
In loving memory
It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to a great man. On June 28, 2012, Oliver Earl Engel passed away surrounded by his children and loving wife, after a brief battle with cancer. Oliver was a man of vision, purpose and he possessed a great and unique sense of humor. He will be dearly missed. We know that every group that had the great privilege of a trip with "Ollie" has an unforgettable memory of his whacky one-liners. He safely transported hundreds of thousands of people of all ages, from all walks of life. He will be dearly missed by everyone.
Engelheim Charter Inc. was incorporated in 2013, owned by Gladys Engel and Shane Engel. Since the beginning it was a family-run business and it remains as such, as the Mother-Son team has taken over after Oliver's passing.
