How we’re spending COVID-19
It is our mission to provide visitors from all over the world with an authentic experience of the unique atmosphere and culture of our home in Canada’s North. As a well-established tourism company, we are using the down time from the global halt in tourism as an opportunity to diversify our impacts and create a more resilient business. Fulfilling the long-term goal of developing a self-sustaining Arctic Eco-Village while investigating innovative solutions to major obstacles facing communities in the North: food and housing insecurity, decolonizing our economy, capacity development, and cultural revitalization.
Role: Camp Manager
Tundra North is creating a self-sustaining eco-village in the Western Arctic to become a hub for local food production and manufacturing. Tundra North will be producing its own lumber to be used in building cabins and other camp infrastructure including a greenhouse, traditional Sod House and Ice House. Our food will be grown in greenhouses and foraged/harvested from the land, it will then be used at the camp and sold in local markets. We are looking for a Camp Manager to manage the implementation of these programs and supervise staff. The Camp Manager would join the Tundra North team living on-site just outside of Inuvik, NWT.
