About Us

Since 1997, Northwind Industries, under the guidance of President and Owner – Kurt Wainman, has worked diligently to provide its customers with the best possible services. Achieving this goal takes the kind of hard work and dedication that Northwind puts into every one of its projects.

Operating from our head office in Inuvik and a satellite office in Edmonton, we specialize in the construction of highways, bridges and oil platforms North of the Arctic Circle, as well as, providing “heavy” long distance hauling to and from Inuvik.

Our Vision

 

Northwind prides itself in being one of the few companies to offer fully qualified and trained local employees.

Being 100% Inuvialuit owned and operated has allowed Northwind to benefit from the extensive experience that our employees have in dealing with the harsh conditions of Canada’s northern territories.

With this practical local experience, combined with world class equipment and training, we continue to be the industry leader in the Western Arctic.
