Horizon North’s long history working in Canada’s North, our superior logistics, and our commitment to safety are three reasons we are in demand as a partner for projects in the region. Another key reason is our belief that a commitment to the communities where we work is critical to our success. This means engaging the people who will be impacted by a project to discuss benefits that are meaningful to them, including employment opportunities for the local communities.
“No one knows the nuances of life and work in the North like the individuals and families who call those regions home,” says Marci Cooke, Horizon North’s Vice President, Human Resources. “The extreme weather conditions, difficult access and rugged terrain are nothing new to locals, meaning they are better equipped to excel working in this one-of-a-kind environment.”
That experience, along with the opportunity to contribute to a community’s prosperity, is why Horizon North strives to employ a substantial percentage of local community members on any of our northern projects. Through our Work North initiative, we actively recruit individuals from the communities surrounding our projects to become a member of the Horizon North family and explore their ideal career path, whether that be in our kitchens, maintenance services, administration, or housekeeping, among other possibilities.
We are proud that Horizon North supports work-life balance, on-the-job training to hone transferable skills and trades for our employees, and meaningful and rewarding work that creates not simply a job, but a sustainable and fulfilling career.
