Workplace Wellness at Esker Camp

Who Visits Esker Camp?

By Alan Coutts, President and CEO Noront hosts 15-20 site visits in a typical year, some just one day others for several weeks.  So, just who is visiting our camp in the heart of the Ring of Fire? Elders from Marten Falls and Webequie are one important group.
