THE VOICE OF THE CANADIAN

MINING INDUSTRY SINCE 1935

Cameco / Cannorth

Supporting Indigenous businesses makes our business better. Canada North Environmental Services (CanNorth) is an Indigenous-owned company. CanNorth was established through the support of Cameco and other uranium mining companies in northern Saskatchewan. For nearly two decades, CanNorth has overseen independent and community monitoring programs that protect the environment for future generations.

CanNorth is 100% owned by Kitsaki Management Limited Partnership, the business arm of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band. The company provides employment opportunities for Indigenous people and all profits directly benefit Indigenous people.

CanNorth is an active participant in the Eastern Athabasca Regional Monitoring Program (EARMP), which was established in 2011 under the Province of Saskatchewan’s Boreal Watershed Initiative. CanNorth works directly with Indigenous residents from the seven Athabasca-based communities to collect both the technical and community samples for the EARMP. In addition to environmental services, CanNorth also provides services related to communication between Indigenous and local communities and mining developments.

Canada’s mining industry is a major customer of Indigenous businesses and a top employer of Indigenous talent. These are important ways that we’re contributing to reconciliation.
