Administrative history

Dominion Steel Casting Company Limited was incorporated under the Companies Act of the Dominion of Canada in 1912 by Clifton and Frank Sherman. They added the Dominion Steel Foundry Company in 1913. In 1917, they became Dominion Foundries and Steel Limited. The company officially changed its name to Dofasco in 1980, though it had long been a popular nickname. In 2006, they were acquired by Arcelor and are now a standalone subsidiary of ArcelorMittal.
