Northern Canada

BACKGROUND

With offices in Yellowknife, NWT and Whitehorse, Yukon, DPRA has been serving northern clients for over 20 years. Our experience comes from living and working in a northern environment, allowing us to better understand and respond to our clients’ needs and expectations.

Through work with First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities and public and private sector clients in Nunavut, Yukon and the Northwest Territories, our team members have worked in fields ranging from health to oil and gas/utilities to mining. Many of our projects have involved travel to communities across all three territories (click here for an illustrated map).
