Nothing happens in the Arctic without dependable means of supply and NUNA's specialized knowledge of northern operations has enabled us to design, build and maintain the reliable all-weather infrastructure required for continuous and cost efficient operation in otherwise isolated regions of northern Canada.

With NUNA's multi-million dollar heavy equipment fleet and on site crushing plants, NUNA has built the majority of all-weather access roads, project site roads and runways in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories. The size and reliability of our fleet, the experience of our personnel and their intimate knowledge of Arctic weather and soil conditions, make it possible to construct essential infrastructure in a very timely and efficient manner.
