Webequie First Nation

Job Position:
Camp Support

What I Do.

Camp Support includes everything from A to Z… servicing equipment, carpentry, even mopping floors, cleaning toilets and shovelling snow. The only thing we don’t do is fly a chopper.

My Typical Day.

My day starts at 5 am. I shower, shave and get ready for breakfast. After that we have a tool box safety meeting at the shop and from there we wait for our daily marching orders from our superiors. The day usually ends about 12 hours later at 5:30 pm.

What do you do on your days off?

My shifts are two weeks on and two weeks off. During time off I like to travel or camp out with my friends. I also enjoy spending time with my many nieces, nephews and other family if they are in town.

You worked for Noront before. How did you start working with them in the beginning?

I used to work with Noront before and I came back because I enjoy it. In between, I worked with Matrix Aviation and Logistics.

As Noront transitions into an operating mine, what would you like your future career to look like?

My career aspiration is to be on the management side of the company either as a foreman or a camp manager, but the position I have is good for now.

What is something you always bring with you to work?

I try to bring everything I need for my 2-week tour: smokes, extra clothes and DVDs… I like to have a lot of music.
