Kipnik provides reliable site support services across the Arctic
Kipnik Inc. is an Inuvialuit-owned company that provides customized support services, maintenance and operations, airport services, and wildlife security solutions throughout the Canadian Arctic. Kipnik has a strong track record of providing staff for projects throughout the North and is committed to operating with the goal of developing long-term socioeconomic benefits for Indigenous Peoples, businesses and communities. We are committed to the highest safety and quality standards, leveraging our innovative skilled service solutions and expertise to meet and exceed customer expectations.
Formed in 2019, Kipnik Inc. is a partnership between Canadian Base Operators (CBO) and Kipnik Wildlife Services. Over the past 25 years, CBO has provided facilities management and operational services across Canada, offering reliable solutions to clients in the Canadian Defence, aviation and energy sectors. Kipnik Wildlife Services, an Inuvialuit owned company, was established by Founder and President Jason Okpik-Cutten when he realized that wildlife monitor positions in the North were being filled by southern companies with workers from the South. It only seemed natural that traditional knowledge held by Inuit and Inuvialuit People be utilized to fill these positions.
“Kipnik Inc. is proud to support our communities in the North,” said Okpik-Cutten. “With our mandate of Indigenous employment and local economic development, we continue advocating for work done for the North, by the North.”
CBO and Kipnik Wildlife decided to form the Kipnik Inc. partnership to strengthen this mandate by ensuring local employment and socioeconomic benefits stay within the local communities. Kipnik and CBO bring decades of industry best practices and knowledge to many northern projects, all with their own geographical and logistical complexities. It is our first priority to support Indigenous and local suppliers, provide training and employment to the local communities and to bring real economic value and benefits to the North.
