Land Crafted

Canada’s North has never been a haven for small businesses. Its high costs and small markets make it an inhospitable place for entrepreneurs. But a few enterprising people are thriving across the North.

Introducing Land Crafted: a five-part series exploring the business environment of northern Canada. We’ll meet entrepreneurs making jewelry, soap, clothing, scents and more, using inspiration from the land. Discover what they need to break out and find out what “success” means to them.

This series was made possible with the support of EntrepreNorth; the organization did not have editorial input into the videos or articles published on The Narwhal.
