About

What We Do

The Northern Shopper is a multi-services company with a single goal in mind:

We strive to improve the supply chain between Qikiqtaaluk Region, Nunavut, and the rest of Canada.  We aim to bring Nunavummiut closer to the things they need and want, and to do it with care for our clients and their products.

 We operate an online store containing 1300+ items.  Just add items to your cart, checkout, and you will see your food in a few days.

We have the most innovative and helpful sealift company in Nunavut, tailoring our services to your exact needs.

We supply various restaurants and institutions throughout the North with wholesale food and merchandise.

We provide logistics and procurement services for all kinds of Northern projects and businesses, including secure Ottawa storage and freight management, including discounted freight pricing for your Northbound freight.

Who We Are

We are a dedicated team of professionals with an intimate knowledge of food, aviation, logistics and service.  We are your friends in the South, your partners in success. 

 

How We Got Here

Kit was approached by one of her friends at her husband's grocery store.  Her friend asked, "Can you send me some food?", and Kit replied, "Yes." - There, in that moment, an opportunity and a need danced to the eternal tune of supply and demand, and the Northern Shopper was conceived.

Initially a personal shopping service that began 'accidentally' in 2011, The Northern Shopper now serves the personal, hospitality, construction and mining sectors, while regularly innovating it's processes to bring food costs down for businesses, individuals and families living in Nunavut.

 

Where We Are Going

We will continue to work tirelessly for our clients to improve your life in Nunavut.  And we will strive to be a household name.  A name that stands for quality, trust, reliability, and a force for positivity.
