Horizon North Logistics Inc. has completed the $14 million purchase of Moose Haven Lodge in Janvier, forming two new partnerships with First Nations in the region.

Moose Haven Lodge is a 288-bed lodge providing worker accommodation needs in the 881 corridor between Fort McMurray and Conklin and is a key element in the Corporation’ partnership with the Janvier Aboriginal Industrial Services Corp., which is owned by the Chipewyan Prairie Dene First Nation.

Chief Vern Janvier of the Chipewyan Prairie First Nation says this partnership is a vital piece of future development.

“We are pleased that Horizon North purchased the lodge and joined with us to finalize our new camp and catering partnership. As partners, we look forward to generating new business opportunities in our territory which will benefit the Nation and all our members.”

Horizon North has also partnered with the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation, who owns Acden Services Limited.

The two new acquisitions bring Horizon North to 23 partnerships with Aboriginal communities in Canada.
