Community and Commitment
NEAS is a proven effective development tool serving local Nunavut and Nunavik Inuit
More than just a marine carrier, NEAS is a reliable economic link between Canada's Arctic and the world.
Headquartered in Iqaluit, NEAS is majority local Inuit owned company. Our shareholders include Makivik Corporation from Nunavik and Tukimut from Nunavut. This group of controlling shareholders is joined by Transport Nanuk, a Canadian marine carrier which has operated in the North for more than half a century.
NEAS is a local Inuit alternative to traditional shipping services. NEAS offers ice-class vessels sailing under the Canadian flag and adapted to conditions in the Arctic. Above all, NEAS is a shipping company committed to customers as its first priority.
