Company description

 
Arctic Co-operatives Limited is a service federation supporting 31
member Co-operatives in Canada's Arctic. The Co-ops are
involved in many types of businesses - including retail stores,
hotels, fuel delivery, postal services and cable TV. Services
provided by Arctic Co-operatives Limited to these
member-owned and operated diversified businesses include
accounting, auditing, marketing of arts and crafts, purchasing,
training and education, management advisory and support services.

Arctic Co-operatives Limited has a subsidiary company called
Canadian Arctic Producers (CAP). CAP is one of the worlds largest wholesale
marketing organizations specializing in Inuit and Dene high
quality art. The art can range from soapstone to other natural
material such as whale bone, fur, ivory etc... Other art includes
print making, wall hangings and tapestry. There is also a wide
variety of wearable art. Inuit sculptures descend from
the ancient art of carving. They are made of materials
generically referred to as soapstone, but differ according to
mineral content and stone found in various regions of the
Arctic. Each soapstone carving is unique as it ranges in colour,
as well as in style. Each Arctic community has its own artistic
style based on available materials and local artistic influence. Inuit art is
uniquely Canadian and enjoys an excellent reputation world wide.

Co-operative member-owners. There are 20 hotels scattered
across Nunavut and the NWT. Some hotels offering tourism
