The success of the design is well illustrated by the fact that before production ended in 1967, 1,631 standard Beavers had been produced and delivered to 62 countries around the world.

In 1978 the Canadian Engineering Centennial Board selected the Beaver as one of "Canada's most outstanding engineering achievements."

The DHC2 MkIII Turbine Beaver model replaced the piston engine with a 431 kW (578 ehp) Pratt & Whitney PT6A-6 or -20 turboprop engine.

The Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre's Beaver CF-OBS, was the first Beaver off the production line and on April 26, 1948 it became the first Beaver to go into service with the Ontario Provincial Air Service.
