The Chief Kinbasket Lodge is comprised of a 403 bed facility providing remote workforce accommodations for multiple contractors working on the Mica Dam generator installation. The Lodge is located at Mica Creek approximately 135 km north of Revelstoke B.C. This lodge is operated by Secwepemc Camp & Catering LP (SCC); a joint venture owned by Horizon North Camps & Catering and Sexqeltkemc Enterprises Inc. In 2011, the Lodge contract was one of the largest contracts ever awarded to a First Nation joint venture. The Lodge consists of six 2-storey dormitory wings for craft workers and two 2-storey wings for managers or supervisors. Our tasks, all in collaboration with our First Nations Partners, also provide catering, housekeeping, grounds and facility maintenance.
Our Sexqeltkemc partners have been exemplary working towards furthering their economic development strategies and providing meaningful employment and training to members from their own and surrounding communities. The lodge has operated for five years, maintaining an average of 60% local Aboriginal employees, translating into over $4.5 million in wages and benefits collectively for those members working in the lodge.
In October 2014, our joint venture business “Secwepemc Camp & Catering LP” was awarded the 2014 BC Aboriginal Joint Venture Business of the Year, Outstanding Achievement Award.
