Work for us! Find adventure and opportunity in the North.


Who We Are

The people of Canada’s North make up only 0.3% of the country’s population and are spread out over 4 million square kilometers (almost 1/3 of Canada’s land mass) of rugged terrain. We bring them together.

We connect the North through innovation—by supporting the development of advanced communications and entertainment solutions that reach further and provide better service for our customers. We serve over 121,000 people in 96 communities—46 of which are only accessible by air. It’s a vast and diverse audience. 70% of these communities have less than 500 people, while 40% of all our customers live in Whitehorse, Yellowknife and Iqaluit—the engines of business and government in the North.
