Canadian North is an equal opportunity employer. Members of designated groups (Inuit, First Nations, Métis, Women, Visible Minorities, and People with Disabilities) are encouraged to apply and self-identify.
Canadian North is 100% Inuit-owned by Makivik Corporation and the Inuvialuit Development Group. We serve an incredibly small and widely dispersed customer base, which represents less than 1% of the population in Canada. Our flights enable the movement of people, food, and medicine, while providing access to crucial medical care and government services.
Nearly all of the communities we serve have no road or rail access, meaning the residents are completely dependent on air service for all aspects of life. We are uniquely equipped to meet this challenge head on with our diverse fleet of aircrafts capable of serving in varied environments from snow to ice to gravel.
One-third of the Canadian North team live and work in the Arctic with around 200 Inuit contributing to all areas of our organization, including as board members and senior leadership.
Our mission is to meaningfully improve the lives of our people, our customers, and the communities we serve. Our vision is to be respected within Canada’s North as a dynamic and caring airline, diversifying to serve other geographies and markets by leveraging our skills and resources. Our values are safety, integrity, teamwork, innovation, service excellence, community, and respect.
