Supporting Remote Operations
Remote workforce operations are difficult. Between changing workforce demands, remote locations and tough terrain, it’s challenging to balance it all while keeping guest experience a priority. It’s why we have combined our various service offerings and expertise with hospitality, integrated facilities management, and modular construction to provide an entire brand dedicated to driving performance and productivity throughout Canada, spanning even the most remote regions. Our Horizon North business specializes in providing a range of integrated hospitality services, amenities, and infrastructure support services to suit a variety of project needs.

Workforce Accommodations & Executive Lodging in Kitimat
The demand for natural gas is increasing. With rising populations, infrastructure advancements and the need to replace coal energy, many countries across the globe are investing in dependable sources of liquefied natural gas (LNG). Kitimat, British Columbia is home to LNG Canada, the country’s largest private investment in history. Construction of the facilities and marine terminal, which will extract, liquify, and globally export the energy source, began in 2019 with plans to be operational by 2025.
This major project has brought thousands of highly skilled workers to the District of Kitimat. Identifying the need for substantial workforce accommodations and executive lodging, Horizon North opened Crossroads Lodge in 2019.
