Kipnik Supports the Arctic Bay Kings

Arctic Bay, Ikpirajuk in Inukitut, is a coastal hamlet at the northern tip of Baffin Island, the Qikiqtaaluk Region, of Nunavut. This beautiful and traditional Inuit community is served by annual supply sealift and by the Arctic Bay Airport. Arctic Bay is the home of the Arctic Bay Kings basketball team which in November 2022, Kipnik Inc. proudly supported with a donation towards the purchase of impressive new team uniforms. We wish the Arctic Bay Kings huge success in the years to come!

Formed in 2019, Kipnik is a partnership between Canadian Base Operators (CBO) and Kipnik Wildlife Services. It is an Inuvialuit-owned company that provides customized airport services, facilities management and operations services, and wildlife monitoring services in dynamic and remote environments. To quote Kipnik Founder and President Jason Okpik-Cutten, “Kipnik Inc. is proud to support our communities in the North. With our mandate of Indigenous employment and local economic development, we continue advocating for work done for the North, by the North.”

Kipnik’s team is growing! Currently there are two Wildlife Monitor positions open – one based out of Inuvik, Northwest Territories and one based out of Iqaluit, Nunavut. See
