The Fort McPherson Tent and Canvas Shop started as a government project in 1970 and continued in that manner until 1990. Today the Canvas Shop, as it came to be known across the North, is a successful business, employing 17 producers on both a full and part-time basis. Fort McPherson Tent and Canvas Shop is located above the Arctic Circle in a Gwich’in community of approximately 800 people. The factory attests to the skills local native people have been employing for generations making moccasins and traditional clothing.

Today, a wide array of durable and practical arctic tough items are available, including canvas wall tents, tipis, attaché bags, backpacks, duffle bags, and portfolios.  Only the best materials are selected, which when coupled with the superior craftsmanship, results in high quality products able to survive in the harshest climates.

Owned By: Fort McPherson Tent and Canvas was established in 1970 by the Department of Economic Development and Tourism to stimulate employment in Fort McPherson, Northwest Territories.
