2012 First Nations Natural Resources Youth Employment Program participants thank Education, Industry and Government partners for their ongoing support. This video was first shown at the 13th Closing Ceremonies held at Firesteel Camp -- Upsala, Ontario. 

Outland is very proud of our 13 year lead position in the delivery of FNNRYEP. Watch for the 2014 edition.... It promises to be another awesome experience for Anishnaabe youth.

On behalf of all staff at Outland Camps, we would like to wish everyone a Happy National Aboriginal Day!

Outland Camps has been working with First Nations and Inuit peoples in remote locations since our inception in 1985. Outland Camps sees the need for a long term shift in our remote camp and catering workforce toward a higher percentage of aboriginal employees. To this end, with a variety of partners, Outland Camps undertakes extensive First Nation training initiatives to build workforces capacity in the in the local aboriginal populations.

We encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to learn about Aboriginal people and their continuous contributions to Canada.

Outland is proud to have been able to offer camp catering services for the 12-week Oshki-Pimache-O-Win's Mining Essentials program. This program offered valuable pre-employment training to 14 graduates from Webequie First Nation interested in work in the mining industry. Originally, the training was scheduled to occur in Webequie however due to poor winter road conditions this was not possible. Instead the location was moved to Constance Lake and held in the Eagles Earth facility. Due to this unscheduled change of location, Outland was invited by Constance Lake to provide its remote camp catering services. Outland Camps and Catering is pleased to have been a part of such a valuable program and wishes the best of luck to all the graduates. Congratulations!

Following the lead of former Ontario Lieutenant Governor, James Bartelman, Julia (15) and Emma (14) Mogus of Oakville are continuing to support literacy among Aboriginal youth by collecting and shipping thousands of books in to Nishnawbe Aski Nation communities across northern Ontario.   They have delivered in excess of 21,000 books to date with thousands more sitting in their basement ready to be processed and shipped north. 

Outland Camps owner/manager, Dave Bradley, was initially approached by Porter Airlines to assist the Books With No Bounds team (which also included Mom, Janet Mogus and friend/supporter, Oakville Councillor, Pam Damoff) with logistics on their recent trip north.  Porter has been helping the girls with transportation from Southern Ontario to Thunder Bay.  Wasaya Airways has been assisting with air travel and transport of books from Thunder Bay into the northern communities.  On this last trip Half-way Motors Nissan provided a Nissan Cube for local transportation while the Best Western Nor'Wester Hotel and Conference Centre took care of accommodation.  Outland Camps is providing book storage and book forwarding/road transport assistance from our Thunder Bay office when required. 

Dave joined the foursome at the Aboriginal Youth Achievement and Recognition Awards dinner where Julia and Emma were winners of the Community Involvement Award.  Regional Chief, Stan Beardy, NAN Deputy Chief Goyce Kakagemic and newly elected Fort William First Nation Chief Georjann Morriseau all had an opportunity to speak to the youth and their families and supporters.  It truly was an inspirational evening with a fantastic line-up of First Nations youth from across the province being recognized for their achievements.

Also, during their recent trip, the Books With No Bounds crew travelled with  Chief Stan Beardy to the remote community of Fort Severn.  It was an eye opening experience for all.  They were blown away by the hospitality of the community and the warm and friendly people there.  Chief Beardy has been a keen supporter of Julia and Emma since they first met about a year ago when he was first elected Ontario Regional Grand Chief.

Visit the Julia and Emma's Facebook page and their website for more news and information.  They are truly Teens on a Mission! #Bookswithnobounds

Outland Camps has a great working relationship with #APTN.  For the past few seasons we have been catering the hit television series Blackstone.  The photo shows Outland Camps chefs Louis Rodrigues and Chis Deaver posing with cast members Ray Thunderchild, Steven Cree Molison and Bernard Starlight. In addition to providing quality catering, Outland Camps has installed and operated remote housing and work camps since 1985.

Outland Managers, Lynne Montgomery and Dave Bradley flew into the remote community of Webequie on May 23 to participate in the Simon Jacob Memorial Education Centre annual Career Fair. Following a traditional lunchtime feast for fair participants, the school gym was absolutely full of community members of all ages looking over displays and asking questions about employment opportunities and potential career paths. The major industry players in the region like Cliff's and Noront were in attendance as well as other employers in fields of education, policing, geographic information systems, and health. MNDM was on hand promoting careers in geology, mining exploration and mine development. Four Rivers, the GIS arm of Matawa Tribal Council, did an awesome job keeping the younger grades engaged with really cool games and interactive tasks. Outland has been working side by side with First Nation's and Inuit people in remote locations since our inception in 1985.
